In Italy there is no "vignette" for the highways but you pay at toll booths. Because we have enough time, we decide to take the smaller roads. This way we don't have to pay the toll and we see more of the country.
Between Pisa and La Spezia we drive through a mountain range and there is nothing there. No inhabitants, no village and more important since we are in dire need of diesel: no gas stations! When we finally find one (the most expensive one we've seen in Italy so far ...) we are very relieved that we made it and judging by the number of liters that go in our tank, we've made it only just.
We have our dinner in the on board restaurant. Because only very few people opted for a night cabin, the choices in the restaurant are limited. We have 2 schnitzels, 1 beer and 1 water and pay 25 euros. And the taste? It was food and with that all is said ...
After a stroll on the deck we decide to call it an early night. There is nothing else to do. Once boarded, you are not allowed to go off the ship so a walk in the town of Livorno is not possible.
