Cinque Terre

Before we visited Pisa, we decided to visit the Cinque Terra.  These are 5 beautiful cities on the Italian Riviera that are connected by a walking trail called the Light Blue Trail.

We were only able to walk from the first city, Riomaggiore to the second city, Manorola on the “Love Walk”.  We only had a few hours and we wanted to see as much as we could.  After that, we took the train.

We skipped the 3rd city, Corniglia and took the train to the fourth city, Vernazza.  We stopped at the beautiful, historical castle there before we had lunch.  The views were absolutely beautiful.

After lunch, we took the train to the fifth city, Monterosso, again, gorgeous and walked along the beach.

I realize that I am standing in front of a man in a speedo… it was a European beach!  There is almost no way to get a picture without some old dude walking around showing of his “stuff”…

And of course!  We stopped for Gelato Smile.

It was a beautiful day, and I would love to go back one day with more time and hike the full trail!
