    Cinque Terra

    July 9 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We stayed at our accommodation in Chivari which lies between the Cinque Terra villages and Portofino. We were delighted when we discovered that Richard and Caroline Cook were holidaying in Montorosso at same time. We met and shared a meal together. We arrived by train and bought tickets that allowed us to stop at any of the five villages, hoping to catch a boat ferry between some of the villages but to our dismay discovered that the ferry was not sailing that day due to heavy swells. In Richard and my views it looked fine to sail! For more on this topic please consult Richard and my previous sailing experiences and joint ownership of two sea going vessels! However we used the train, saw three of the five villages from the north downwards and then sat at the train station for just under three hours waiting for a train to take us home. A mixed day but very enjoyable still. We encouraged each other...."just relax.....This is Italy". Last time we are at the Cinque Terra we started at bottom and saw the first three so we have now seen all villages!!Read more

    Cinque Terre - Day 22 Tour

    August 18 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Went to the beach this morning, cost $28 euro to reserve the LAST lounges and we were there before opening time.

    The water was beautiful, so refreshing, Kirah and I swam out to an out cropping of rocks for Kirah to film herself jumping off.

    Got a bit more sun and then left for lunch. We caught the train through to Manarola and wandered along the cliffs and the village.

    Had gelato and an Iced Coffee and then wandered yp to Nessun Roma for drinks and snacks for the afternoon.

    Caught the train back home.

    Bassano Del Grappa to Monterosso Al Mare

    May 6 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    We left on a 8: 25 train, changed trains at Venice, Florence, and Pisa and arrived in Monterosso at 4pm. Beautiful snow capped mountains on the second last leg of our journey. The train between Venice and Florence was an intercity train which had screens which told how fast the train was going and at its fastest we were travelling 249 kms/hr!

    Booked in to our accommodation and walked around the town. Lovely views of the ocean. We found the cemetery on top of the hill. Such a lovely outlook! There were a lot of tourists with American accents which is very different to our last 2 weeks.

    P.S. There will be no more meal reports as we now need to undo some of the excess eating that we were obliged to do during the tour and will be having very simple meals!

    Dinner at L'Ancora della Tortuga

    May 8 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    After getting the train back from Corniglia we had time for a rest before heading out to dine. This restaurant is Michelan Plate listed. We elected to have the banquet where we got small serves of many dishes. A special treat for our last night in Monterosso.

    Strandspaziergang

    September 19, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Am Morgen nach der unruhigen Regennacht wachten wir mit angeschwollenen Augen und tiefen Augenringen auf. (Das Foto ersparen wir uns an dieser Stelle.)
    Nach einem kurzen Frühstück und einer warmen Dusche machten wir uns auf den Weg zu den Cinque Terre. Von unserem kleinen Bahnhof in Deiva Marina ging's mit dem Zug direkt am Meer nach Levanto. An unserer Rezeption wurde uns gesagt, man könne in 1,5 Stunden von dort zum ersten der fünf Städtchen an der Küste entlang spazieren. Klang gut, wollten wir unbedingt machen.

    Die ersten 15 Minuten am Strand entlang (Foto 1) waren total schön. Das Meer hatte eine wunderschöne Farbe, die Sonne schien, es war endlich warm und wir schlenderten ganz entspannt den Weg entlang. Aber dann, dann änderte sich der entspannte Strandweg und es ging steil bergauf. Je weiter wir uns bei gefühlt 28 Grad in langen schwarzen Hosen nach oben schleppten, desto mehr sank meine Laune. Nach knapp 10 Minuten haben wir tatsächlich auch kurz darüber nachgedacht umzudrehen, waren aber dann der festen Überzeugung, dass es nach diesem Aufstieg bestimmt ganz entspannt am Meer entlang weitergehen würde. Aktuell waren wir nämlich nicht so ganz direkt an der Küste unterwegs (Foto 2).

    Überzeugung hin oder her, es ging weiterhin aufwärts - STEIL aufwärts. Aus dem matschigen Pfad wurde ein steiniger Weg, wurden große Steine, wurden große Felsen; teilweise ging es rechts direkt steil abwärts. Und wir mit unseren super wandergeeigneten Schuhen. Zwischendurch sank die Laune sogar bei Natalie und das heißt was. Die Schilder sprachen mittlerweile auch nicht mehr von 1,5 sonder von 2,5 Stunden. Die Aussicht war natürlich absolut grandios. Das endlose Meer, die Farben des Wasser, die Wellen - wunder wunder schön.
    Nach etwa 1,45 Stunden hatten wir den höchsten Punkt erreicht. Unsere Köpfe glühten rot vor Anstrengung, die Füße schmerzten, die Knie meckerten auch schon und dann zogen auch noch dicke, fette, schwarze Regenwolken auf. Zum Glück ging es ab jetzt nur noch abwärts und in ca. 1 Stunde waren wir endlich, endlich in Monterosso angekommen.

    Monterosso al Mare

    September 13, 2014 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Monterosso al Mare, antico borgo marinaro fra punta Mesco e l'isola del Tinetto, è il paese meno aspro e scosceso delle Cinque Terre. La sua posizione a ridosso delle colline coltivate a vigna e ulivi cingono l'abitato come in un abbraccio. Le sue stupende spiagge, le meravigliose scogliere a picco e le acque cristalline del mare rendono questo paesino uno fra i più accoglienti della riviera ligure di levante. 
    Qui troverete una buona offerta di ristoranti dove assaggiare piatti della gastronomia locale e assaporare un bicchiere di bianco doc. A Monterosso si trova una delle spiagge più scenografiche della Liguria: la spiaggia di Fegina, la più grande e la più comoda delle Cinque Terre e l’unica di sabbia.
    Monterosso non regala solo suggestivi paesaggi sul mare, ma anche un importante patrimonio architettonico. Inoltratevi nell’affascinante borgo vecchio, tra i suoi caruggi che profumano di salsedine, ammirate la facciata gotica della chiesa di san Giovanni Battista, l’antico oratorio di Santa Croce e la chiesa di San Francesco dove è custodito un dipinto, la Crocifissione, attribuita a Van Dyck.
    E a maggio le vie di Monterosso si tingono di giallo grazie alla sagra del limone. Durante la festa potrete assaggiare marmellate, limoncino, torte e creme al limone e visitare un tipico limoneto.
