The Grand Hotel Savoia is a great hotel. We've been lucky enough to stay in some of the great hotels of the world - the Taj in Bombay, the Cecil in Alexandria and the Winter Palace in Luxor and this hotel is right up there with them. It's not super luxe or super chic - it's just grand in the old fashioned way. Grand like you'd just want to stay in your room all day and read a novel and then descend at tea time and linger in the great room and read the afternoon papers

In the evening we went down to the cool of Porto Garibaldi for some great seafood and gelatos.
Then a big sleep, unsuspecting today's misadventure.
To brighten Wenzo's spirits we head north tomorrow to one of the gold jewellery-making centres of Italy.

... city centre in the world. 27 degrees on Sun but a bit of a breeze if you're facing the right way so here I come. First impressions: very hilly evidenced by the no of funiculars (cable cars) that are around, not for me today, I only have 3 hours before getting the bus to Savona, 45 k westward. Haven't seen any beggars, any stray cats (none at all), no stray dogs and only 1 Nth African junk seller so all of that's a record for ...
