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 Bellavista Panoramica at the junction of Via Carpanini and Via Carbognano which provides beautiful views across the bay and San Terenzo in the north west.
