Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. It’s a series of 5 small towns right on the Western coast of Italy. It’s a big vacation spot for Italians and other Europeans. The thing to do while you’re there is to take a hike through the mountains along the edge of the Mediterranean. The easiest hike takes about 5-6 hours to do and goes from the first town of Riomaggiore, through Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and finally onto Monterosso. One thing that was strange is that most of the beaches throughout the villages are rocky beaches. The only sandy beaches were in Vernazza and in Monterosso. The views from the different cities of the mountains and the coastline are amazing. Here’s some pictures.
And that’s Cinque Terre!!
