A small village in the heart of a big city. It's a jewel! Wonderful restaurants, excellent ice cream parlours, a view to die for!

We are in the Cinque Terra as I write this and there is hands-down no comparison. That was pretty obvious as soon as we arrived in Boccadasse though. A small little place, quite... More

Boccadasse is the fictional home of Montalbano's architect girlfriend Livia. Besides that, though, it offers a very scenic hint of the more commercialised Cinque Terre villages further south, while still being a genuine working fishing village and an Italian holiday and day...
