This is long overdue, I´ve told you a couple of times and so here I am finally doing it. YAY! This is a very photo-heavy post. Hope you enjoy!
- Walk to the church on the mountain: Santa Maria di Montenero (close to Riomaggiore)
The view over almost all of the Cinque Terre is breathtaking, as well as the beautiful scenery!
- Eat in Vernazza
- Swim in the sea
- Sit down on the rocks somewhere and watch the sunset
- Hike the way from Riomaggiore to Manarola
This is a very challenging hike. It´s mostly composed of walking up 1000 stairs. For those sport-freaks of you out there, it´s really fun and even for those who aren´t that fit I´d suggest it, with a few breaks you´ll master it just as well. The feeling of achievement up there is just amazing.
If you´re not tired yet, grab a snack or eat a little something and go on the
- Hike from Vernazza to Monterosso
This one is the most popular one, therefore it´s mostly very crowded. You´ll find people from so many countries there, connecting with them with only one look that says everything:”Damn-this-is-hard-and-I´m-sweating-but-it´s-so-worth-it-everything-is-just-so-beautiful”
There´s no one to blame, since the views at every corner are just breathtaking, but it is quite something, if you´re walking in the sun and aren´t used to going up and down constantly.
For me it was just amazing, because I went the same way the year before and this time is was so easy, meaning all my hard work paid off!!
- Take a boat-ride from one small town to another
- Eat the best Fish
- and the best Pizza
- Try to get to know people who live there
Go in one of those tiny shops and buy something there and small-talk a little. Or talk to your neighbors on the beach… Or sit at the beach long enough to see who owns these cute boats…no, maybe that´s a little creepy..
- Get to know people from different countries
Maybe you´ve mastered a hard hike with someone constantly hiking before you. Maybe the nice family/couple/person at the next table are very nice and you start to exchange words over the things on the menu… You never know… Just be open and friendly and you´ll surely get to know some people, maybe even a new friend?!
- Just sit on the beach and look at the sea
- Take strolls on the beach
- If you have goggles, take a look underwater
The water is very clear if it´s not stormy weather and you can see all kinds on fish there!
- Take time to breathe in the clear, salty air and just enjoy your stay
What are you waiting for? Go book the trip to the Cinque Terre now…! Or I excuse you, if you´d like to read more on my blog. For example my travels in Tuscany.;-)
I hope you enjoyed! Let me know in the comments down below if you did! Also tell me which one of these you´d really like to do or if you´ve been there and think I forgot something, don´t hesitate to tell me!! Until then
