DAY 6 | (October 23, 2020 / May 6, 2021)


Cari amici,

Today, we leave the Cinque Terre in the region of Liguria and take the train back to Pisa where we started our journey together 5 days ago.

To sweeten the goodbye, we found a few special treats for you:

  1. Watch stunning drone footage of all 5 Cinque Terre towns here »

  2. Click here to listen to a love song to Genoa, the capital of Liguria (one of Magrit’s favorite Italian tunes by 2 legendary Italian performers, Bruno Lauzi and gravely-voiced Paolo Conte)

  3. Try your hand at baking crumbly lemony Ligurian shortbread cookies. Click here for the simple recipe. »

Ligurian Canestrelli lemon-shortbread cookies

We had so much fun traveling with you over these past 5 days. Your kind and enthusiastic response encouraged us to continue our virtual photo tours in Bella Toscana beginning this Saturday (the actual day when our photo tour was scheduled to start). Tuscany is our flagship tour — this is where it all started 10 years ago.

Come join us in Tuscany this Saturday and virtually celebrate our 10th anniversary with us.

Cordiali Saluti,
Magrit and Jim

As we’re about to leave the Ligurian coast, here are a few more detail shots you can “collect” while strolling through the narrow lanes of the 5 beautiful Cinque Terre villages (we liken this to mushroom hunting). We hope that you’ve enjoyed the “ride” as much as we have and that we’ll see you in Tuscany this Saturday.

This was us only 1 year ago. Hard to imagine!

Buon viaggio — ci vediamo presto in Bella Toscana!
