Everyone needs a break from time to time. Same for us – after 5 Days on the road, we decided yesterday that we would add an additional – drive free – day in Diano Marina.
Instead of a travelogue, today, just some impressions of what we were up to. (Add a generous afternoon siesta for me).
A walk along the beach, then drive to Diano Marina old town.
We then decide to have our hair cut and be shaved.
Go back to the beach… it’s still really quiet there. (First wave of tourists start arriving next week)
Around (Italian) lunchtime, I head towards a Pizzeria and get myself some to go (and eat at the beach)
Stay at the beach, soak in some sun. (It’s been raining all week in Switzerland and I’ve become quite reluctant to send my family any blue-sky pictures)
So, this is why I am posting the following picture for all those stuck in this week’s awful weather:
For dinner, we drive to the nearby town of Cervo. It’s difficult to describe how nice the place is. Please make the effort to come yourself – you will love it!
Sitting atop a hill, its medieval layout means everything is built-up very close to each other. At the same time, residents of Cervo have understood that they must offer something of interest to tourists, make them feel comfortable and keep them engaged.
Many very nice small shops and B&B besides one of the best Osterias in the region are proof and made a very lasting impression on us both.
After eating some very fine food and drinking a bottle of local wine, we return to our hotel – relaxed and ready for new TWIKE adventures!
