You know that Cinque Terre is going to be absolutely amazing, when you first arrive at the first town and see a face looking out to sea!
The five towns on the Italian Coastline, known as Cinque Terre are full of amazing surprises……………. from the hillside cafe and hill top cemetery (both in Manorola) to Le Gigante Statue holding up the cliff-face at Monterosso Al Mare.
There is the via dell’ Amore ( the path of the lovers) where people trek between the towns of Vernazza and Riomaggiore and declare their love and leave love-locks behind to mark the occasion, and Corneglia stands on the top of the mountain range and is only accessable by trekking up from the harbour for two hours or catching the train and walking up around 200 stairs.
Here is a little slideshow of the wonderful sights we found whilst staying in Cinque Terre
