Cinque Terre, a photo essay

As I have mentioned, during my easter holidays I travelled through Italy. I went to some of Italy’s finest cities and I  finally got to tick Cinque Terre off my travel bucket list. 

Cinque Terre literally translates to ‘the five lands’, in other words the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre national park.

Cinque Terre is crazy beautiful and I feel the best way for you to understand is to share some of my photos.

First up is Riomaggiore, the first village that we visited.

The next beautiful village that we saw was Monterosso al Mare.

We then hopped on to the train to see Vernazza.

Then we made our way over to Corniglia, the only village that isn’t accessible by ferry.

Last, but not least was Manarola, possibly my favourite village.

  1. Just came across your site. Cinque Terre is on my must visit list for 2015. The pictures are beautiful! 🙂 Did you find the logistics of getting there troublesome or is it manageable?

    • Thanks for the comment Leigha. You must go! It wasn’t difficult getting there. We took the train from Genova to Riomaggiore. You could also fly into Pisa and take the train from there. If you have any other questions ask away 🙂
