We were in luck the day that we arrived. The traveling flower and herb market and shown up. It travels from town to town up and down the Cinque Terra. You could feel the excitement from the locals as the beautiful basil was unveiled from the vendor. I just imagined the restaurateurs making pesto for their homemade pastas!
Anything you could ever want was on this main drag that made up the small town. We stopped in a small take-away pizza shop to eat fresh pizza. There were several gelato stores. My favorite flavor was Kit Kat. There were clothiers, grocers, cheese stores, meat stores. It was all there and more. I miss the cute town of Vernazza, and hope to return again someday!
