Grateful for these handy boards with the timetables on them at train stations.  Saved us quite a lot of time being able to work out that to get to Florence we should go to Pisa and catch a train there rather than wait for the next direct train from La Spezia to Florence (which was a few hours away).

PS this one isn’t actually in La Spezia but was taken in the Cinque Terra on the day and is a lot more picturesque than La Spezia.

Grateful that I got to use the outside washing line at our accommodation.  You see these everywhere in Europe but this is the first time I have ever used one.  5 floors up it is a bit scary putting your clothes on it … a long walk down if you drop something.
