Cinque Terre

To celebrate my birthday a few weekends ago, the boyf and I left Spain for Italy and we headed straight to Riomaggiore, the start (or end) of the Cinque Terre. I have wanted to walk the Cinque Terre from when I was in Pisa last which was about two years ago, when I first heard about the incredible view. And it is one incredible view! We based ourselves in Riomaggiore but caught the train to Monterosso where we began the trek. I’m not going to lie but the track from Monterosso to Vernazza is probably the most challenging of them all and to make it even more challenging for myself I walked the entire thing in my black havianas as I didn’t pack any suitable shoes (although I probably wouldn’t suggest that this is the best idea unless you like stubbing your toes at regular intervals). Needless to say, the view from the top is utterly breathtaking and I would walk it one hundred times over just to see it again. And it’s not just the view that is worth the visit to the Cinque Terre it’s all the little villages in between that make it magical. In my opinion Vernazza is certainly the most picturesque of them all – but you can write your own reviews.
