Our mini-roadtrip was not over yet. Stef wanted to make one more stop to show me Portovenere, his favorite seaside town on the Ligurian coast.
It was a little bit of a detour off the highway, but it was well worth it.
The colorful buildings were in the typical Ligurian style.
We got some gelato to eat while walking along the seaside. I say 'seaside' becuase there isn't really any real beach, it's more rocks. But that doesn't deter the Italian sunbathers.
We walked to the far end of the town and climbed up the steps to the church built on
The view was quite beautiful.
From the roof of the church, we could see the bright blue sea all around.
Walking back to through the town, I spotted this cute sleeping kitty.
