Last full day in Manarola

Today we started off going in different directions. Vance and Vangie wanted to try the upper hiking path to Corniglia and Cathy and I wanted to sit back and relax, read our book and vegetate. We hung around the apartment till around 1:00 waiting to see if Vance and Vangie were going to be back in time for lunch, but our tummies would not let us wait any longer. We headed down to find some lunch. We checked out a […]

Manarola, Riomaggiore and Corniglia

The plan was to head to Riomaggiore and look around, then catch the train to Corniglia and look around, have lunch and then head back to Manarola. We started out by walking along the Via del’amore, which is a flat walk […]

After breakfast we headed for the train station to get our tickets to head for Monterosso. The plan was to go here, check it out and work our way back […]

The train went form Florence to La Spezia, which Vance kept calling it La Senza, but there was not sexy lingerie when we got off the train. We […]

Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni

This was to be our last full day in Florence, and we were not even going to spend it in the city. Up early and off to the tour office for our wine tasting tip into Tuscany. Along with that we were going to visit Siena, San Gimigano and Monteriggioni, the last two I had never heard of before this trip. Our fist stop was at the tour office where I Vance and I were discussing the marketing of scooters […]
