Photographer's Note

A perfect place to visit if you enjoy hiking, cliff views, marina's, seafood, and charming colorful towns is Cinque Terre.

As we probably already know because they're so famous, its a collection of 5 towns spread across the cliffs, and each are easily reachable by walking along the connecting trails.

My favorite of the 5 towns was Vernazza. The town was larger than some of the others, so it was easier to keep busy. The views were spectacular as well, and we had a hotel with a large patio that looked out onto the ocean - how perfect was that!

It was actually almost NOT so perfect as we didn't
pre-book any hotel before arriving. We walked around the town practically begging people to let us stay with them, asking if any hotel had a room left.

Luckily we found one, and it was reasonably priced with such a fantastic Ocean view - we lucked out for sure!
Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment of it.

We wanted to hike the connecting trails to all the other towns but the trail was closed much of the way due to rockslides - that was a bit of a bummer. But then again I was recovering from a torn knee ligament i suffered earlier in Greece, so i didn't really mind that much.

Hope you like this view I got from way up on the hillside looking down.

thanks for checking in
