Holiday Travels Pt 5

West coast of Italy and a week in Levanto......
...... living the Italian life in our 2 bedroom apartment behind these doors and up a few flights of stairs........
complete with clothes line off the balcony!
From here we spent days exploring the villages of the Cinque Terre..... Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterossa and the beautiful  scenery in between....

A very resourceful elderly local - with a very long extension cord - was charging 2 Euros for freshly squeezed orange juice on one of the longer treks - a welcome change to water!
And of course there were coffee stops, lunch breaks and afternoon gelatos!! and the inevitable relaxing days at the beach!!
All too soon it was time to say farewell to the Cinque Terre and its fascinating villages and beautiful scenery.... and sadly time to leave Italy which had given us so many wonderful shared memories..... so many more memories to be made here so there will be a return visit sometime! 
We were now heading for a change of scenery and much cooler weather - the French Alps!

Till next time
