CINQUE TERRE

Magical Italy

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น The famous 5 coastal villages that form the "Cinque Terre" are probably on everyone's Travel Bucket list. And, let me tell you, rightfully so. They are unique and unbelievably beautiful. It's best to visit them after the main season. We went there during our cruise in October and it was a perfect late summer day.

The train is the easiest way to get to the villages.

Vernazza

The color of the Mediterranean Sea is amazing!

Make sure to explore the hidden corners of the village as well.

End up at the harbor with this view ๐Ÿ˜

You can take a boat tour from here...

... or eat "Trofie con Pesto", the local speciality!

After your lunch explore more of Vernazza.

#outtodry deluxe is everywhere ๐Ÿ˜‰

Manarola

With the train you'll only need a few minutes here, but you can also hike from Vernazza!

The path is picturesque ๐Ÿ˜

...and full of amazing viewpoints!

Make sure to stop here for a drink!

Sit under the umbrellas and just gaze...

Italian eyecatchers โ˜บ๏ธ

Riomaggiore

This is the place to enjoy the evening and sunset!

Make sure to buy some local products (like lemon soap!)

Climb the stones & sit there with a glass of wine (or juice ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Or take a swim (even in October that's still possible) โ˜บ๏ธ

This will be the perfect end to your Cinque Terre trip!

  • Leontine

    What beautiful photos! Liguria is a harsh land and steep towards the sea, but the views of the landscape that gives are unique in the world! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ฏ

  • ladyvenom

    @leontine yes, it must have been a challenge to live there before cars and trains made transportation easier... now it's just so comfortable to get there and the spectacular views you get when you ride with the train through the cliffs ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜

  • nellyvels

    this is the best Marion ๐Ÿ’• love these colorful towns so much!!! I need to find the time to visit but I don't know if the summer is a good idea ๐Ÿค” I think it may be too crowded

  • ladyvenom

    @nellypng thanks a lot dear!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Yes it's supposed to be super crowded in the summer months. October was perfect - season was over and it was still super warm and sunny ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  • nellyvels

    You're welcome โ˜บ๏ธ Oh then it's the same as Greece. Maybe next October I'll finally get to visit these dreamy towns!

  • ladyvenom

    @nellypng I'll cross my fingers for you! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

  • ladyvenom

    @elisapella thank you so much dear! Have you been there? I guess you have... I mean you live in Italy โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  • ladyvenom

    @Steller thaaaank you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  • ladyvenom

    @ttsbie my pleasure! It's such a picturesque and unique place in Italy - but that's also why it's quite overrun in the summer months. So if you ever choose to go, make it early autumn or so to avoid the crowds โ˜บ๏ธ

  • plessiss
