A port city on the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany, Livorno, where the inhabitants of many cultures and religions have lived together in harmony, was founded in the last millennium. Our evening at the local opera house was made enjoyable, listening to a presentation of 4 sopranos.
Maneuvering along the crowded Boulevard de la Croisette, which curves along the coast, we drove to St-Raphaël enjoying the magnificent scenery of this playground of the rich and famous. The marinas are lined with mega yachts from ports near and far and many more are anchored off shore. Although the international film festival ended last weekend, the streets (and the many restaurants) are crowded with people.
