June 16, 2014 – Levanto – Cinque Terra: Riomaggiore – Manarola – Monterosso
From my journal:
Coffees in our room. Caught train to Riomaggiore. Met NY couple on train. Walked Riomaggiore...
…took boat to Manarola. Walked up to church and took the vineyard stroll. Very nice. Bought tickets to Ventimiglia (for the next leg, to France). Took train to Monterosso; it was 35 minutes late.
At Monterosso we walked the Promenade, explored a WW2 German ‘pill box,’ a small gun bunker.
Gelato Day 15: I had a small cup, one-half Mandarino (orange), one-half chocolate, a favorite flavor combination of mine – a home run!
Train back to Levanto. Dinner at Bar Nadio on the beach. Pasta with pesto, pasta penne with pomodoro, a slice of spinach and ricotta torta and a big salad.
Walked on the beach. Explored back streets with two old churches. Back to ostello.
