Waking up in Levanto

Today me and G sleept in which where nice can’t remember when that happened last time. But when we woke up we realized that we where in the middle of a thunderstorm with heavy rain so we had to wait it out until we could start the day but as we waited we had a simple but great breakfast. 

We prepared for a day of hiking and as soon as the rain stopped we headed for the door. We bought tickets for the national park and the train for 16 € a day and took the train to the village of Riomaggiore and from ther we hiked to Manorola. The hike was thought than expected but meet so much friendly people along the way that everything about the trip was just amazing. When we arrived in Manorola we where pretty exhausted by the combination of heat, sun and the hike over the mountain so we took pretty much the first restaurant we found. I got a pizza and my girlfriend G took a pasta.

After that we ate some granite which is a kind of Italian ice cream but more as a liquid than gelato.

We then took the bus up to the small village of Volastra and from there we hiked throug wine fields on the steep mountain sides and to the village of Corniglia. The hike took about 1,5 hour and was much easier than the first one but much because the fact that we didn’t hike up the mountainside to Volastra but instead took the bus.

We returned to Levanto and took a swim in the sea before be headed back to the apartment and got ready for the evening. The evening we spent by first having dinner at a pizzeria which we followed up by a walk along the beach and then a visit to a bar for a glass of wine and some snacks.

A fantastic day with amazing views.
