Photo Essay: Exploring Cinque Terre

Photo Essay: Exploring Cinque Terre

Last month my girlfriend and I spent 5 days exploring Cinque Terre, this wonderful area of Italy is busy but if you go slightly out of season and stay locally you can avoid most of the crowds. From an Airbnb in Riogmaggoire we managed to visit all five towns and walked mostĀ of the trails in between them including the higher sanctuary trail.

As Cinque Terre is one of the most photogenic places I’ve ever been I’m just going to let the photos do the talking for a change:
