July 2012

Two weeks to Northern Italy with the 'autoslaaptrein' from the Netherlands: The famous Piemonte wine area of Alba and Asti, cities like Turin, Milan, Genoa and Parma, Cinque Terre, the lake district and the base of the Italian Alps.

Arrival in Alessandria, northern Italy after a half-decent night of sleep in the train.
Backwards off the train. That did not go down well with many!
View from the first hotel room of the trip at Montelupo Albese. Good start!
Hotel Ca' del Lupo is highly recommended! With super restaurant.

Walking the trail from Monterosso to Vernazza. Actually, it was too hot for that, but anyway...
Hmmm.... That boat looks attractive too!
Vernazza in sight, at least another 1000 steps to go, at 36 Celsius.

But... It's definitely worth it!

Casa del Limone. Quite a nice hotel. Pity about the climb to it. With full luggage...
Del Limone, it figures...
Parma. Dead. Hot!

Beautiful hotel just before Piacenza. What the photo does not tell you is the noise. Highway and train are right next door. But the noise was not too bad!

Piacenza
Good food for little money. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes ate with us. From us.

Full of mosquito bites, we looked around the nice city of Piacenza.

Nice B&B on the banks of the Lago di Como.
From B&B Tre Terre we had a beautiful view. The fact that you had to take a very steep road for it was no problem for us.

Dries turned out to be a German in a Porsche who did have trouble with the steep road up.

Unbelievable/unbelieving, whatever. But this is going a bit far even for us. Mega advertising on the Duomo.
