Milan Cathedral on Rainy Day
We spent 1 night in Milan after our flight from Atlanta. It rained the whole day. This is my only decent image from Milan.
This is the northern most town of Cinque Terra. We stayed here for 3 nights.
This is the walk from the train station to the old town.
There is a New Town and an Old Town in Monterossa - the only Cinque Terra Town that with a New Town. This image is of the beach in front of the New Town.
