|Our first train. Frecciargento from Venice to Florence|
|Our first 2 hours were in comfort from the free mini bar of our previous hotel|
|Second train not so. This is not on!!! I had to step over the bags to sit down and may have "accidentally" stepped on the carry on. Oops.|
|Our last and final train from La Spezia to Vernazza!|
The day was hot and the Cinque Terre towns were full of tourists as expected. Although check in to our Vernazza apartment rental was smooth, my mother was dismayed to find a steep 4 flights climb to our quarters. We walked down to the water to have a look see and to get some gelato and provisions.
We last came here 7 years ago with the family for a lightning quick shore excursion from La Spezia on a Disney Magic Mediterranean cruise. It certainly was a different experience coming at a different time of the year! We bought our 5T card in preparation for tomorrow's hike and retreated to the comfort of our a/c room. Yes we're wusses I know...
