You know when you live in a place and then get really lazy and never go see any of the nearby sights? Yes, well. that's me. The person who has lived in Italy for almost 15 years and never been to Venice, Milan, Le Cinque Terre etc. So since I finished my job it's been all about making an effort.
So the lights of Salerno were top of the list. We made it there last weekend and it was well worth the effort. The Corso (main shopping street) was beautiful with stars and snowballs mingling with the palm trees.
Paestum 5 years ago.
The road that runs along the seafront was lit up with fairy lights in all the trees, very simple but always effective.
As we walked into the old town quarters the lights became more exotic. They looked like shining jewels strung up above the narrow alleyways.We wandered through the old streets, stopping for an ice cream, which is totally acceptable behavior at 7pm on a Saturday evening before dinner.
It was all very festive and magical until suddenly there was a power cut and everything went dark. We waited a while but nothing happened so we worked our way back through the crowds into the main street where electricity still ruled.
