Every time I go to a new city I make the proclamation that it is my absolute favorite, but I think London will be hard to top.

Everywhere you turn in Florence you come across another gelato shop and once you think you've seen them all, there's another one. The experts say that the true gelato doesn't have all the showy decoration, it is lighter than ice cream and is displayed in covered tins.

We started the day at Manarola. … Continue reading Cinque Terre: Beaches, Buildings and Booze Buckets
