Cinque Terre named for the five villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore which 
together with the coastline and the surrounding hillsides are all part of Cinque Terre National Park 
and is a UNESCO World Heritage SiteWe took 7 km of stunning coastal path between Corniglia and Monterosso. Unfortunatelly, Via del'Amore between Riomaggiore and Manarola was closed because of the construction works 
so our first plan to walk all 9 km of trails failed.

The small villages are old and charming but the walk itself it took my heart away. Two of them actually, 
my hollow muscle that pumps blood (yes, it was too hot with a lot of steps) and my other heart, 
my sparkling and elusive heart that makes all the beautiful reasons for the first, biological one.
The heart that makes me grateful for the glittering sea, the ancient olive trees, the beautiful views, 
that brings me peace and makes me feel I can make it all better. 
Cinque Terre, it is really that kind of place.

( + an amazing focaccia and gelato;))


  1. oh god look at that beach.. that is where I want to be right now..

  2. Cinque Terre is my favourite place ever especially during Summer. Love the Mediterranean Sea on this part of Italy. Your photos are amazing!

  3. Thank u! And I can imagine it being pretty beautiful in the late autumn too when there is less people on the paths and on the seacoast and air is calmer and more peaceful. It doesn't sound bad as a new plan,-)

  4. It's on my bucket list, and I think you just moved it up a few notches!

  5. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I've seriously stared at the picture of the man diving off the dock for quite a while... for a couple of times now. I can't even describe how wonderful it makes me feel. Excellent shot.

  6. Thnak u, really! I also like how fearless it looks like, I guess we all need such examples sometimes.

  7. I honestly can't get over that diving picture. It's been over a year! When I'm rich and have a bigger home, can I buy a big print of it off you?
