Goodbye Cagliari, hello Genoa
After a week in Sardinia I rode up to Porto Torres in the north of the island and caught the ferry to Genoa. This is an overnight trip and as it was early in the season the boat was half empty. After sleeping overnight stretched out on a sofa in the bar, I awoke with the Ligurian coast already in view. For me, the highlight of this voyage was the entry into Genoa. This is quite dramatic because of the way the city stretches up into the mountains that rise up tight behind it.
Fifteen minutes after docking I was riding off the ship and heading along the coast road for Nice on a lovely, sunny morning. Cool.
