1st May 2015 Introduction to this holiday
A wet day today, so no hiking on the trails. Instead we took the train up the coast to Chiavari.
The façade of the cathedral – there was a service going on when we looked in, but when we returned later the cathedral was closed until 3.30pm, so we didn’t get to see the lovely interior.
Strelitzia = Bird of paradise, growing in the street
A lot of the buildings are painted
Former Chiesa di San Francesco – now holds events
Parco Villa Rocca – this was the garden of a grand house that is now a museum. It wasn’t raining, so we had a look around the botanical garden (€1 entry fee) and ate our sandwiches
