I'm going back to Italy in November & this just entices me more! Hope their economy hasn't totally collapsed by then...

Is it Portofino?

It reminds me slightly of this great town in South Wales I visited for an August Bank Holiday weekend.

This used to be a community of fishermen until Rick Steves visited it and then wrote a book about it.
Now, during the summer especially, it is crowded with tourists (worse than Tuscany), who all claim to have 'discovered' this place. They actually walk around holding Rick Steves' book....It used to be Italy's best kept secret.

I think it is Portofino, Hilary.

I loathe Steves as a personality but I do enjoy his travel books b/c they are so informative. I also get a lot of use out of his website and forums. Rick is a blantant anti-Catholic and some of the stuff he says in his youtube videos always sounds so pissy and condescending.
