Cinque Terre is a backpacker’s dream! Great for hiking and to see the spectacular views you really have to hike (there’s no cars in the town which adds to the appeal for me). Cinque Terre is made up of five towns on the coast and I stayed in Vernazza which I was so happy with! (apartment here) You take the train to other cities, hike, or go by boat. The first video is from Riomaggiore. You have to have breakfast at the Cannoli Brothers in Vernazza if you go! The twin brothers are hilarious and such characters… best cannolis ever! (But everything is good). I was sad to leave I actually took the latest train possible home to Tuscany and spent my last day hiking and swimming in the Mediterranean. The waves in Vernazza are no joke though Monteresso has more swim friendly beaches.
