The caves of Balzi Rossi - 2

We are still walking toward the caves. If you look at yesterday's post, you'll see we left the first museum building and walked up the ramp. At the top of the ramp, you saw a covered bridge. Well here is that bridge, taken from the other direction. As you see it runs over the railway lines linking the French and Italian Rivieras. At the beginning of the bridge there was a locked iron gate, which the guide opened (I'll explain about the guides tomorrow but you should know there were three guides for one solitary visitor - me! - talk about over-staffed). Once the gate was unlocked I was permitted to walk on and discover the caves alone.

Don't worry, I know that bridge looks rickety but I assure you it's fine.

Come back tomorrow. We are getting nearer...


  1. Interesting photo because it shows the extent used to keep rocks and things from falling onto the tracks below. I suppose it works too.

  2. I'm getting anxious here. Ready to explore.

  3. Are people allowed to cross the bridge when the train is running under it?

    I bet that would be an awesome photo, but I'm not sure I'd like to be the one taking it! :)

    I'm enjoying this tour Jilly and will definitely come back tomorrow to hear more about the guides.

  4. I'm standing in a spot where I can look out at the Mediterranean for a few moments before I proceed to the cave with you.

    Alone? You may have been the only visitor at the time you took this photo but now you have many friends walking along with you, Jilly.

  5. I'm getting anxious here. Ready to explore.
