    Nautical Nights 🌄🛟🛶🌓

    June 11 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Second last night in the Italian Riviera! As promised, here are some spectacular images of Riomaggiore by night. The vibe in this town is very relaxed and chilled. A very good way to end a week long stay in the Cinque Terre. But! Wait! There’s more!

    Tomorrow morning I’ve booked an authentic Pesto Experience at Nessum Dorma in the last of the five towns: Manarola! It’s a very sought after experience and one of the only ways to guarantee a place for lunch at this establishment!

    Of course, had they known who I was then this obstacle would not be necessary 😝😝😝

    Every single town is like a magical storybook land… They are really beautiful… The pictures probably don’t even really catch exactly how they are.

    Cinque Terre

    April 19 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    We popped over to the Cinque Terre town of Riomaggiore for sunset. We had some yummy gelato, hot chips and fish croquettes. We watched the shiny fish in the sparkling water and wondered what was making the mysterious circle in the water.

    We headed home very late for an Italian timing dinner of Pumpkin ravioli and cheese and pepper sauce made in our apartment.

    Ravishing Riomaggiore: Final Act

    June 12 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Sadly, time to bid farewell to the Italian Riviera. As a final tribute let’s appreciate the balcony views while feasting on fresh mussels, regional wine 🍷 Limoncello 🍋 and cannoli…

    No words 😶
    Just mindful moments of appreciation 🇮🇹☀️🌿

    Your pictures and videos have been just delightful to see, you certainly have done justice to this lovely place the deep blue of the sea looks so inviting. You will certainly have so many marvellous memories to have for years. You certainly didn’t need to take a camera with you. Well done.

    Rest & Relax in Riomaggiore

    June 11 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Sitting on our private balcony overlooking the Riomaggiore with the Italian Vintage Summer 🌺 playlist! Just returned from a meandering wander through the very picturesque streets and tunnels of this beautiful town! And, in case you’re wondering 💭 Yes! The business owners seem friendly & relaxed 😌 It’s so refreshing to experience mutual respect ✊🏻 after V.

    It’s just turned 6pm. Wine 🍷 time on the terrace. Sun ☀️ is high in the sky on a 30 degree day. Oh! I dread 😬 coming back to Winter 🥶 after being treated to a second Summer 🌺
    If only I could travel indefinitely… I’m really pleased with my thought in packing this time: I have worn everything I have brought which often doesn’t happen. It’s still an extra stress, especially post Covid and flying cheap-ass airlines like RyanAir! You almost have an anxiety 😦 attack hoping your case doesn’t go universal the strict requirements… more than allowance equals big bucks 💰 extra! 🥹

    Been for 3 swims 🏊‍♂️ today and I’m feeling relaxed but I must admit that a week looking a pretty painted houses 🏘 and navigating 🧭 steps and hills and rocks 🪨 is probably enough. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve adored every town except V… well, not true. It was spectacular too. Just the folks needed to attend Tourism 101. 😝😝😝😊

    Richard & I went into the local deli and bought some goats 🐐 cheese 🧀 which is yum 😋 and focaccia, strawberries 🍓 (with taste!) and freshly picked olives 🫒 for pre dinner 🍽 platter. Having an actual apartment, as in London last week, certainly adds to the enjoyment of having space and room to move, along with your own space. This apartment is bigger than mine! It’s fabulous 😎😎😎

    Enjoy Riomaggiore by day… ☀️🍋🥐🍕🍸🍷🚄
    I’ll take some nighttime representation when the sun goes down. At 9pm 😝😝😝

    He was so kind and helpful here. One of his staff came and collected us from the station and took us to the accommodation which was lovely. Complete opposite to most of the people in Vernazza . Haven’t met Sandra but hopefully will today. everyone was really friendly here. It is so nice having an apartment with two bedrooms and a really big balcony! And it was only €500 for both of us which I think is about $350 a night between two of us. The best value accommodation we’ve had so far. The prices are not really cheap here like they were when I went to Tuscany. They probably put them all up for the tourists. Oh well, that’s the way it is so windy in Rome… X

    Cinque Terre

    May 2 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Mit dem Zug in 4 von 5 der malerischen Dörfer des Cinque Terre. War uns fast zu touristisch und jetzt schon sehr überlaufen, aber für diese tollen Aussichten hat es sich auf jeden Fall sehr gelohnt :)

    Pesto Impresto 🌿🧀 🍷

    June 12 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Wow! Wow! Wow! ☀️🤩

    What an amazing experience this was!

    Nessum Dorma is a renowned restaurant that sits above a cliff top in Manarola. This is one of the few ways you are able to get in without a reservation. It was worth every single euro of the €60 we paid.

    Not only was the location absolutely amazing. Gobsmackingly beautiful& stunning but the staff and the presentation of the entire experience was out of this world! Perfect 😍

    The owner, Simone, won the piece of land the restaurant is on in a competition. Only three people entered and he won the right to build whatever he wanted overlooking the Manarola Bay. Surprisingly, there were only three people who actually entered the competition in total. Now that he has made an absolute success of it the locals are constantly trying to make it hard for him. It seems he is having similar experiences with some of the locals as Richard and I have had. Many of them begrudge others for being here. What a shame! He has done an amazing job. The pesto experience happens in the morning and then people are lining up down the path to come into the restaurant to eat. Without a reservation it is not going to happen.

    Anyway we were given all of the necessary ingredients of quality including local garlic, fresh basil, local cheese and pine nuts. We were told exactly how to perfect the most delicious pesto I have ever eaten. We were never rushed and constantly supported and always in good humour.

    Towards the middle of the experience we were each given a glass of local wine 🍷 which was slightly salty due to the region terrace agriculture and wine growing right beside the sae. Then came the most delicious 😋 platter: individually prepared and passed to every single participant. We were allowed to take as long as we like to enjoy and devour the food and the view. And also there was a competition to win a local bottle of wine… Everybody was a winner! 🥳👍🏻🍷

    I would put this up with one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

    Every single moment was perfectly orchestrated and we felt honoured to be part of the group. W🙃Right down to the moment that we were gently sprayed with mists of water that where perfectly constructed within the balcony frame construction. This is the true meaning of entrepreneurship. He deserves every success and we had the best time enjoying what Simone has created!

    The 10 gorgeous young Italian waiters added quite a significant benefit of this experience as well…🥰😝😝

    This was a brilliant way to finish our week in the Italian Riviera! 🍸👍🏻🥰

    This took place in Manarola, the final of the 5 towns (Cinque Terre)

    Oh what an experience! It sounds absolutely amazing. If I ever get to Cinque Terre I’ll make sure to book this. Bravo Simone! Manarola is the nicest looking imo. It’s iconic and those crystal clear waters?? It made me want fly over and dive in. Like you said Troy this looks like the perfect conclusion to your cinque terre adventure. And this blog was the best thing for us to experience it vicariously through your posts. Mille grazie signore xx

    Thanks Ephie! I have really enjoyed writing my thoughts down like a diary in a way… I hope you shared it with your mum… Funny you should say that about Manarola because I think that and Monterroso were the absolute best. Probably equal first. Although, I absolutely loved Rapallo and the walk down to Portofino on the first day. The towns had less tourists and more locals just living la vida loca! 👍🏻❤️🥰

    Cinque Terre

    October 7, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Der nächste Stop hat mich gestern nach Riomaggiore geführt. Ein verschlafenes Dorf in einem Bergkessel gelegen. Wirklich wunderschön. Hier habe ich mich die letzten zwei Tage rum getrieben. Es ging viel bergauf und bergab aber es ist einfach eine malerische Kulisse hier. ☀️🌴🌊
    Heute ging es auf eine Wanderung zum nächsten Örtchen was sich als knallharter Berganstieg herausstellte. 🤣🤣 Habe dann zu dem nächsten Dörfchen den Zug genommen, in dem auch ein Teil von "Wolf of Wall Street" gedreht wurde. Heute Abend lasse ich es mir nochmal über Riomaggiore gut gehen. Und morgen geht es ein Stück näher Richtung Heimat. Werde nochmal eine Zwischenstop in Como machen um die Strecke zu verkürzen und nochmal ein paar Sachen ein zu kaufen. 😁😎

    Manarola for dinner

    August 24, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    After the boat trip we got changed. I wanted to see Manarolo.
    We caught the train and ended up at La Spezia station 🚉 in error. Caught train back to Riomaggiore. Off the train, walked down a long tunnel to the mariner.

    Riomaggiore is a steep skinny fishing town. A quick look around we found it too touristy and not enough restaurants so we caught a 4min train to the next town Manarolo.

    Manarolo is a pretty town. Walking through the back streets toward the bridge at the front.

    It was nightime with twinkling lights everywhere lending a magical atmosphere.

    I wanted to sit and eat at a restaurant looking out at the little bay below us. So we hopped in line. A short wait and were ushered to our seats. I enjoyed the pesto Gnocchi and barbecued prawns. Our waitress was attentive and fast.

    A group of men possibly on an Italian bucks night were making their way up thru the township singing. It was like a mini festival. They were all wearing calamari sunglasses! 😎

    We enjoyed a slow walk back to our precious hotel.

    Unsere Unterkunft in Biassa hat sich gleich als wander Hotspot entpuppt. Scheinbar der perfekte Ausgangspunkt um den Cinque Terre Nationalpark zu erkunden. Naja... Wenn wir mal hier sind für 4 Tage...
