A Taste of Cinque Terre

August 2, 2012

You can’t get much more Italian than starting off a morning with an espresso, taking a mid-day break for pizza, and cooling off with some gelato. After parting ways with France, it was Italy-bound to the little tourist destination known as Cinque Terre, most famously known for their five cliffside towns, breathtaking views and crystal clear water. Our first day we decided to hike from the town of Monterosso through the cliffs to Vernazza. Breaking a sweat and working up quite the appetite, here is all the deliciousness we were able to enjoy along the way.

      Thank you! I would recommend heading to Monterosso, the furthest north of the 5 towns. It’s where we ate dinner both nights. There are plenty of great restaurants that line the small streets just up from the beach. Have a wonderful time!
