    17th September
    We really like this place where we are staying for a couple of nights it's a B&B and our hosts are friendly, they don't speak English but we are managing quite well. We take the train into La Spezia and onto Cinque Terre, it's a rugged piece of coastline on the Italian Riviera and comprises of five villages. The coastline, the five villages and the surrounding hillside are all part of The Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is reached by train, we buy a ticket and then get on and off at each village, it is a very popular tourist destination and today it's extremely busy. It is all fascinating, we didn't quite know what to expect but we have a fantastic day, it's very warm too. When we head back to La Spezia it is so busy that we only just manage to cram onto the train, an uncomfortable journey, thank goodness it's quite short. Our last night in Italy, we eat pasta & drink red wine in Sarzana before walking back to base. Heading for the French Alps tomorrow.Read more
