First day:


Wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning, departure towards Liguria, town of Lerici. Arrival at 9.00 am, the weather is cloudy, not really a good start ..... It unload suitcases from the car to deposit them in the rented apartment, bright and spacious, a nice choice. Booking on the Internet, we were lucky. Some shots of the day of arrival. Fortunately, the sky is open in the afternoon, making a glimpse of a pale sun.
