One of the first places that came to my mind when I knew Italy was on the cards…Cinque Terre. After admiring many photos of these cute little villages, I was on track to ticking off another ‘must see’ that was high up on my list. Pastel Paradise on the cliffs of the Italian Riviera! We started off at the top with Monterosso and worked our way down to my personal favourite Manarola, stopping in at Vernazza on the way. Vernazza had the most going on with many local shops and restaurants, but the view of Manarola is like no other. We used the train as our transportation which was perfect, only taking a few minutes to pass from one village to the next. This also showed off the villages from a far all lined up along the coast line. Wow! No wonder this place is a MUST SEE! To make the day even more special was the fact I got to spend it with one of my all time favourite people – my Nana Roo!
