ITALY: Equi Terme, Gragnola, Filleto

Equi Terme

Equi Terme was a small town down the mountain from where we were staying. We toured the caves and took a dip in the sulphur pool. Also went to a number of fantastic restaurants in this town.



ITALY: Codiponte & Cassola

The town I stayed in, Viano, is in the Lunigiana area of Northern Tuscany, which consists of small towns scattered throughout the mountains. We used Viano as a homebase and visited the towns, which are all unique.

ITALY: Cinque Terre

We visited the Cinque Terre, which is about an hour from where we were staying in Viano. The Cinque Terre are five mountain towns nestled along the coast of the Mediterranean. A ferry shuttles you from one town to the next. We didn't get a chance to see all of the towns, but it was a really incredible experience.

Porto Venere


There is a cliff walk between the towns Riomaggiore and Manarola. It had some really beautiful views of the sea and some great graffiti.
