After the experience in Montpellier, we decided to splurge on our airbnb in La Spezia, Italy. And it was one of the best decisions of our trip. We had the entire place to ourselves and were able to totally relax. The photo above was the view from our skylight. The 10 flights of stairs to the top of the building were totally worth it to have our own private porthole through which we watched the sunsets and thunderstorms. And, to make it fun (?), I tried to kick my butt as I ran up each stair. Hard, I tell you!!!
