The charme of Vernazza aperitif time

The charme of Vernazza aperitif time, an experience that leaves us utterless any time we have the lucky chance to have a glass of wine or a spritz there. The Piazza and the aperitif rite, for locals and visitors, every day at sunset. And every day our emotions are newly fresh as the very first day!. Love and beauty, peace and serenity pervade any stone, buildings, sun umbrella and spot of Piazza Marconi, since Vernazza life is all there, at that peculiar moment of the day and no other place seem more attractive than this.
