Quaint, isolated and beautiful even in this weather!
I loved the narrow streets with shops and residences along the way.
I bought a jar of pesto in this shop.
Steep stairways everywhere.
At the end of the street is the Church of St. Peter.
It was pouring rain and VERY windy so we opted not to walk over.
We were protected somewhat from the blowing wind and rain between the buildings in the narrow walkway.
Beautiful even on a rainy day.
We were fortunate to be here just before the tourist season.
Sometimes it is a good thing to avoid the crowds.
The coast is mountainous with wonderful views.
Marble stairs, tile and old wood.
Just look at the finish on this old wooden door.
All along the street were interesting old doors with whimsical knockers.
I would love to stay here.
This street makes my heart sing!
The shopkeepers take pride in their shops.
The customer service is incredible.

In the afternoon we stopped at another coastal town.
I don't remember the name.
Cars are not allowed (except taxis), so we had to walk from the bus parking lot down a long hill into the town. The weather had improved somewhat so the walk wasn't too difficult. (I did take a taxi back up the hill to the bus.)
We had a wonderful lunch in the green building.
I will do a food post later.
Fun day in this unique part of Italy.
Next San Gimignano.
