In which there is even some knitting content.
One of the most scenic tours we took in Italy was the trip to Cinque Terre. This is a group of five towns along the coast of Italy, connected by a series of trails. Access to the towns is generally by train or by boat. We were exceptionally fortunate that the day we went there was the nicest weather day we had on the trip. It certainly wouldn’t have been great to go their in the rain. We went to La Spezia by bus, and then took the ferry to visit the towns. I can see why this is such a popular place for people who want to walk the trails and enjoy the beautiful scenery – I would love to stay there for a few days.
One of the specialties in this area is pesto. But it’s also known for its lemons, and the liqueur known as limoncello. Personally, I wasn’t too wild about the limoncello, but I did like the lemon cream liqueur.
Can you believe these lemons? This isn’t a dinner plate, it’s a huge platter. I estimated that the lemon in the foreground was about 7″ across.
The towns were very charming to walk through
And the sea was gorgeous (yes, I did take the opportunity to wade into the water – it was warmer than I expected).
And look! Knit happened!
A 7″ long lemon?! Yowza.
I LOVE LEMON ANYTHING! The colorful little town (it’s name starts with an L, right?) has been on my want list of places to go for years!!
Did you eat at the Castle? I had the most amazing pesto lasagna there.
Wow, that place looks amazing!
