We were unable to actually visit the church of Sant. Antonio di Padova, as there was a wedding there, and the guests were all arriving.DSCN2442Once the guests had gone inside, the groom was left out, waiting for his bride.DSCN2455Not being invited to the wedding, I decided to sight-see instead!  I quickly joined the crowd of locals as they took advantage of the nice afternoon, and the lovely setting. DSCN2444DSCN2451Everything that I had read turned out to be true.  Boccadasse was a magical little enclave!DSCN2452DSCN2459DSCN2465Nothing seemed to matter here, except enjoying the day!DSCN2466DSCN2471DSCN2474DSCN2479DSCN2483One is never far from a cafe/bar in Italia!DSCN2487DSCN2492DSCN2496DSCN2498DSCN2500DSCN2502DSCN2504DSCN2506DSCN2518DSCN2523I fell madly in love with this little part of the city!DSCN2525DSCN2526DSCN2533DSCN2537Once you walked to the top of the town of Boccadasse, the coastline spread out before your eyes, and it was really beautiful!DSCN2551DSCN2550DSCN2559DSCN2561We headed back along Corso Italia for part of the way, and then decided to try a slightly different route back to the center.DSCN2576We soon came to Piazza della Vittoria and the Arco dei Caduti.DSCN2589DSCN2588DSCN2595DSCN2600DSCN2603DSCN2607Back in the center there was still time for a little passeggata before dinner, which was had at a tiny trattoria close to the apartment.
