Cinque Terre: Monterosso – Part II

Monterosso - The cat, you and us

How was your weekend? Congrats to all our US readers for the 4th of July celebrations! Hope there were plenty of sparklers, blue, red, white and ice-creams (tons of this!). My weekend was unfortunately the opposite of a celebration, I had my sixth appointment for the same tooth to the dentist, and it looks as finally it worked and they were able to fix it for good, so I guess sixth time is a charm? The down side is that I’ve been in pain due to the recovery. Do you know which is my best remedy? Your guessing is probably right: Cinque Terre! Here we have the second part of our Monterosso adventure, grab a hat and let’s fly away!

For the last day at Cinque Terre we decided against visiting new towns or hikes to investigate Monterosso further since there were a couple of places we still had to check out and we were more interested in a relaxed good bye. Monterosso gave us the perfect farewell with the yummiest food from the 3 days, wonderful sights from the monastery and water splashing on rocks making me feel more alive than ever. Oh! And I was able to wear my favorite dress from our Cinque Terre suitcase, feeling good is always a plus, right?

During our last day we bought pesto, a tiny lemoncino bottle, ate tuna carpaccio, drank a very sour spremuta di limone (lemon juice), bought a souvenir t-shirt for Dani, walked up high to the monastery and had our last Cinque Terre sea sight. We were able to repeat with less heat a little of the Vernazza trail (just up to the fee admission point) but our favorite was the monastery & cemetery climbing, not only it was breathtakingly green beautiful but we were able to have a quite different view of the old town of Monterosso, much more colorful than it looks from the seashore.

    I feel your dress belongs in these photos as much as all the lovely bits that make Monterosso so lovely! I love the pretty blues and the textured walls and those painted fish! Oh and that amazing stripey wall :) Such pretty photos to look at before bedtime – hopefully I have nice dreams now!

      Thank you Jane! I can’t believe I have been able to resist 6 horrible visits to the dentist, I know it’s not their fault, but oh my I’m so scared each time I have to visit them. This Friday I will have my stitches removed and they will confirm that the tooth is finally healthy, let’s cross fingers! :)
