The Cinque Terre

We are now in a delightful B&B near Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast which has wifi! So nice to be able to email and blog again. We have been to so many places since my last post. So back to the 3 September when we visited the Cinque Terre. This is a lovely part of Italy and we were looking forward to our time there. We had only one day but we managed to visit all the towns, some by foot, some by train and some by boat. We walked the easier track from Riomaggiore to Corniglia. I walked 6 kms! This is, of course the easier part of the track. We also caught the  ferry from Riomaggiore to Venazza which was a lovely way to see the towns. Here are just a few of our many photos.

Just loved these handpainted tiles for the wall from Monterosso. Such a shame they are heavy and we haven't much room in our luggage!
We had a drink in this little square in Monterosso.

We stayed in a lovely little town nearby called Levanto. It is a small beach town. Here is the beach. Please note the life guard. Looks a dangerous beach, doesn't it?

Most of the beach was sectioned off and you had to pay to sit under the umbrellas provided! 
Here is a nice view of the beach in the evening.
