Verona to Cinque Terre

August 21, 2016

A traditional Italian breakfast of cold meats, cheese, pastries and coffee! Yum!

We had a great wander around Verona – which truly is a gorgeous little town.

Including seeing Juliette’s balcony which was a real highlight for Eli 🙂

Eli and Lachie both had a chance to catch Mr Mime (which is just unheard of in Pokemon Go circles!).

Then we headed to Cinque Terre – where parking again provided a challenge but not an insurmountable one!

We then caught the train between towns, and wandered up and down hills and around cute towns.

Where I think the highlight for E+L was the gelato, and for B+N certainly the views!

Finally off to the surrounding hills to the picturesque “serene” Monastero Santa Croce where we would spend the night in a monastery.

the view from our room was spectacular!

The monastery was not quite as Sound-Of-Music-esque as B had hoped, but probably too much so for BNE+L – so it was probably the right balance 🙂 A great experience 🙂
