|Subject: Re: Cinque Terre|
Debbie--A couple of years ago my wife spent close to a week in a lovely
hotel which is located just above the chic town of Forte di Marme. It would
fit most people's definition of a romantic hotel. It is Il Bottaccio Hotel
in Montignoso. The food was excellent. It is close to Lucca, Pisa, Viareggio
and about a 1 1/2 hour drive to the Cinque Terre area. Where a day is more
than enough time there IMHO with the best part of the drive would be a stop
in Chiavari for lunch, which is right on the coast. The restaurant La Barca
is on the seaside in Forte di Marmi where you will be able to get freshly
grilled fish served with just salt, pepper and wonderful olive oil.
Do a search on google for _Il Bottaccio_to learn more about the place.
