Sestri Levante, where the group stayed for the second half of the holiday, was a lovely place, and luckily the weather was great for the afternoon and morning that I had free to explore the town. It faces onto two bays, the larger one where our hotel faced, and the smaller Bay of Silence which had a lovely sandy beach. On the morning I was leaving I collected some beautiful sea-glass and pebbles there in the sunshine. I also explored up the hill towards the Castelli where we'd had dinner the evening before.
Delicious food in the sunshine
Trompe l'oeil decorations on the buildings
My favourite shop in Sestri - it sold children's books and illustrated items
The stunning Oratory of Santa Caterina
Bay of Silence
Church bells in the morning
