The story behind the image

Lerici offers all the best from Italy: A historic old castle, a yacht harbor, a nice piazza, several good and affordable restaurants. What’s more, you will be able to capture excellent views across the Mediterrean Sea and Poet’s Bay, that’s the portion between Lerici and the opposite coastline.

I took this photo from the Via A. Bacigalupi which provides beautiful views across Lerici. The street is narrow and curvy but you’ll find a parking lot next to the Bar Silvia. I hopped out of the car for a few seconds for this magnificent shot.
