Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of the 5 towns, colorful houses and vineyards cling to steep terraces, harbors are filled with fishing boats and trattorias turn out seafood specialities along with the Liguria region’s famous sauce, pesto. The Sentiero Azzurro cliffside hiking trail links the villages and offers sweeping sea vistas.
Our first exposure to Vernazza was a small blurb in Conde Nast Traveler (a magazine addiction in my home). We took one look and thought “I want that…..” the planning began.
Next up….Monterosso al Mare…dinner and Limencello at spots suggested by friends!
