Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit. You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns are a little smaller.
I highly suggest starting your visit from the most western town of Monterosso, then Vernazza, Corniglia and then Manarola and Rio Maggiore. I found Manarola and Rio Maggiore to be most beautiful and lively, so starting in this order will keep leaving you in awe.
Monterosso has the biggest beaches. The whole region is great for hiking, if that is something you like to do. While in Manarola, we hiked up the hill and experienced amazing views of the towns of Manarola and Corniglia. You will also find yourself amongst small yards growing everything from veggies to grapes for wine.
The region is known for their pesto so make sure you order some pesto pasta, you won’t regret it. Also, being a fishing town, deep fried seafood is a must and a great place for it is Tutti Fritti in Rio Maggiore.
Towns are closed to the cars so pedestrians can walk around freely. Just make sure to be ready to constantly walk up or down hill, so heels are a no-no. If you’re not with a car, you can still visit all 5 towns with a train. Just don’t plan to do it all in one day. You will miss the essence of these beautiful little towns.
We loved our 4 days in Cinque Terre. We ate some great food, enjoyed the scenery, hiked a little and had pizza and lots of wine by the sea.
