While in Cinque Terre on a Angelo's Boat tour, I discovered how fun it is to see coastline towns and cities from the water. Especially when there are great places to stop and swim. I've since done similar tours in Sorrento, Italy and Barcelona, ...
Save Place
Via Guidoni, 56, 19018 Vernazza SP, Italy
