Tiny Streets

Tiny Streets

This tiny little street, if you want to call it that, is in a little, hilltop village called Civezza. You can bring your moped right down to your front door but, if you have a car, there is a small parking area just outside of the village. These streets have been this wide since medieval times, why change them now? There are smaller streets, this one is actually kind of a main one if you can believe it.

The village is about four kilometres from the mediterranean so they used to (I only saw one) have five towers to be on the lookout for Saracen pirates. I've actually been to a former pirate den that is just down the coast from here. Being attacked by pirates was an actual danger. It's not often you get to say that earnestly.

It's quiet in Civezza. The views of the hillside vineyards, olive groves and the mediterranean are sweeping. The most activity going on seemed to be cooking judging by the great smells wafting through the air. It seems like the kind of village that you could write a book in.

My other photographs of Liguria can be found in the gallery.
