Lerici: summer 1998
Lerici is beautiful, romantic and the perfect honeymoon getaway: Lerici was not a recommendation from anyone, in fact it was just one of our stops for the evening on the long drive from Austria. I must admit I was intrigued with this little town with so much character. we arrived in the late afternoon and it was very busy with foreigners/ tourists like us. Talk of Italian, this town is as Italian as it gets: it's worth it. The view across the bay to Portovenere is just fabulous. The town is built into the hills and below is the lake with an awesome view on a moonstruck night like the one we visited on. Lerici is a typical European beach with a very Italian style, filled with very civilized visitors, full of life and the service and catering well for families with young children, with little play areas along the seafront as you come into town and a carousel. Helen joined the little children to play as soon as we arrived.
