Hot! Varigotti

Varigotti is the neighboring beach town just east of Finale. I stayed at my friend Carlo’s apartment just 20 steps from the beach. Not bad digs, even if I spent very little time there. Instead I would wake up each morning and run out the door to catch the bus into Finale to climb. While it is only 3km away, the bus cost 2.50 euro each way. In comparison, my train ride from Venice to Padua cost 2.90.

I’m sure I was getting the tourist fare, but could not figure out how to make this short ride cost any less. Watching the rising sun change the color of the sea each morning and listing to the waves every night, though, made it very easy to dismiss this irony of travel.
