Vernazza was awesome and relaxing. Cinque Terre means five villages and basically that is what it is, five villages hidden along the coast with death trap roads leading into it. Getting there was quite the adventure. I'm not kidding when I say we have walking paths in Canada bigger than these roads. It was a white knuckled drive hoping we didn't run into any other cars, but absolutely worth it for the view...
BREATH.TAKING. Simply breathtaking.
I'm a beach girl through and through, just give me a book, some sun and sand and I'm good to go. This little town was heaven and perfect for 3 relaxing days on our trip. The food was wonderful and our hotel was amazing. Our days consisted mainly of breakfast, lounging in the sun, having dinner, and watching the sun set (while eating gelato of course).
Mike likes the beach too, though welcomed the shade a bit more than I did.
