An Introduction to Cinque Terre

For our government-decreed flu holiday, Betsy and I headed to Cinque Terre for four lovely days. There will be many posts to follow (I think we took nearly 1000 photos -- I'm not exaggerating), but below you'll find an introduction to the five towns that we wandered between and amid for the better part of our holiday. I'm jealous of us.

Monterosso, the northern most town

Vernazza, on the small and quiet side, and also where we stayed. See that really thin yellow building on the harbor? That's where we listened to the waves crash as we fell asleep each night...

Corniglia, the only town on a cliff above the water


Rio Maggiore, climbing out of the water and straight up the hillside
