Hiking along the Coast

We did a beautiful hike along the Ligurian coast today. The weather was mixed, but the vistas were spectacular.

Till took this photograph of us.

The trail along the coast was very steep at times and you
needed to hold on chains to traverse some tight spots .
The mountains in the back rise over 400 meters from sea level.

Trip to Camogli

On my first weekend in Genova I took a trip with a local train to a small harbour village called Camogli. It is about a 30 minute train ride south of Genova. Very picturesque as you can see.
