It is said that Dolceaqua is one of the nine most beautiful medieval towns in Italy. For me it was a pleasant surprise. Ofcourse I has some kind of an idea what it would look like, but when I had rephotographed Kurt Hielscher's photos, we drowned into a labyrinth of narrow streets and imagined ourselves centuries back in time. Dolceaqua was only half an hour drive from Menton in France where we stayed for the night.

The old town of Dolceaqua is like a labyrinth. We walked all the way up to its castle.
