(CLICK FOR VOICE) It's all about the sea in Le Cinque Terre... see the photos. Our 10-hour tour today was, yes, exhausting, but also a wonderful option to the previously-visited Florence. We traveled by bus and train to five small medieval towns that haven't change much since the 14th century -- only 500 to 1000 inhabitants each, who sustain their lives from olive and grape production, and some tourism. The Cinque Terre community is a chain of 'old towns' built on sheer cliffs, with a bell tower and church at each, rising above the tile roofs. We indulged at a typical sea-side restaurant -- It's our final port, with one more sea day.
