The red hike got quite intense but finally when we were close to Manarola we started weaving through vineyards and getting great views down to the sea.
We ended the night at a small pizza place with a cheeky Italian owner and a carafe of wine.
It was great to get out into what is more of our comfort zone in the middle of our trip. The hiking and trees and spending our nights reading and eating chocolate wafers was really relaxing and serene. But next up Florence!
