A side trip from Florence, Italy took “The Golden Girls” to the villages of Cinque Terre where colorful architecture and amazing views are straight out of the tour books.
Revisit the seaside towns of Port Vendres and Collioure, France with me and my North Carolina friends. You may want to put these two on your “must see” list! When “The Golden Girls” discovered Port Vendres and Collioure, the quaint towns along the Mediterranean, it was quite by accident. […]
