Monterosso, Cinque Terre
Monterosso, the northern most town is a seaside vacation spot. You get off of the train on the beach, then head through a brick arched tunnel back under the tracks to the town on the other side. You got to love the trains in Italy, it takes 2 1/2 hours to walk from Vernazza to Monterosso, the train takes 6 minutes, they flat out fly!
We had a beautiful lunch in a little Bistro tucked into a medieval storefront, Yvonne had tuna with olives, capers, tomatoes and drizzled with olive oil, she said was one of the best meals she had here.
Beautiful town, you can see why people come here to stay and enjoy the sea..
