Walking the Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre is a gorgeous stretch of coastline on the Italian Riviera punctuated by the five villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. Assuming good weather and track conditions, you can walk between the villages (a track known as Sentiero Azzurro or ‘Light Blue Trail’) and enjoy the beautiful views on offer. The section between Corniglia and Manarola is known as the Dell’Amore or ‘Lovers Walk’ by the way if you wanna impress your lady (and I know you do). Shout out to the ice cream store in Monterosso for their amazing gelato.

Further along the Cinque Terre coast we came to Vernazza, another delightful little fishing village.

Checking out Manarola

Time for some exploring on the Cinque Terre coast of the Italian Riviera. I began by checking out Manarola, one of the five towns that make up this beautiful stretch of land. Look at those houses! Gorgeous!
