Rick sidetrips to Carrara's quarries, where Michelangelo selected his marble, then returns to Vernazza to stroll the only street (with the entire village) as the sun sets.

He checks into a medieval hospital, savors the exquisite art of Memling, and climbs a bell tower to get up-close and fortissimo at a carillon concert. Then, passionate chefs--creators of French fries and Europe's finest chocolate--give him a taste of their art.

Today, Gypsy orchestras feature smoking violins, venerable mineral baths are the rage, and 19th century coffeehouses enjoy a renaissance.
