Once packed up (must get faster!) we tried to pay our bill. Rog tried first, but they had a delivery so were preoccupied…Plus he tried in his Italian, gesticulating and adding “o” to each word, that we needed to use the back gate to exit rather than squeezing through the way we arrived, when they had to clear away all the chairs! I eventually paid and the gates were eventually opened…it all works just slowly…love it!
We left our mountain valley of 750m and continued to climb steadily up, very slowly and cautiously, along beautiful twisty forested mountain roads until our descent towards the coastal road via Genoa.
Arrived at our Genoa west site in good time, but in extreme heat!
Sorted ourselves, had lunch, a rest then a thorough guided tour talk of Genoa.
Off we went, with our train tickets to discover for ourselves.
An old Port, industrial and very run down in parts but none the less, very interesting…not touristy!
Wandered through the old town and up to a high point to realise the scale of the city. Ate gelato! So good!
Genoa Pegli…a former seafront village now lies within the boundaries of Genoa. It’s flower-filled, quaint, seems a friendly community and peaceful in comparison with Genoa!
As we sat on a bench, overlooking the sea, Rog found us the next Archers episode…how incongruous but lovely!
