    Poor old Archimedes doesn't look too bad for his age not sure about the suntan though could be a problem in a few years

    Lovely!

    Can you still stay on the harbour there? We stayed there on New Year's Eve about 8 years ago and loved the place. Lovely to see it again.

    Great stuff, I hadn't realised Archimedes had invented the satellite dish. :)

    On a more serious note, how did you get there, ferry from Genoa or did you drive down Italy?
