One Tuesday at Cinque Terre, Italy

In April, I got to spend my spring break – 11 days – in Italy. The trip was rich with history, culture, and especially food. : )

We spent most of our time in Rome, but made this day trip out to Cinque Terre for some beautiful hiking along the Italian coast.

This hiking area is full of sweeping views, crisp and salty Mediterranean air, seaside life…

The main hiking trail also takes you through 5 small coastal Italian towns, where you find your way through small, winding, complex Italian alleys….

Interesting architecture and inspiring personal touches accent the walls and streets throughout each of the towns…

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting about some of the food we came across as well as the atmosphere of our hike! See you then. : )

  1. I’m glad you got to capture some of the lovely buildings in these small coastal towns. While accessible today by rail, one can only imagine what it must have been like to reach these towns by either foot or by horse. Pretty Cinque Terre! Thanks for your post!

  2. These photos are amazing! I’m going to Cinque Terre for the first time in November, and this just made me really excited! Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to read about your next post!

  3. I love the colors in these pictures Kate! I would love to hike there one day.

  4. When I was in Cinque Terre I hiked from the 1st town to the 5th. The most spectacular walk thru gardens on the side of the mountain. Dont miss that walk if you are going and if you missed it,, what a loss

  5. I don’t recognize the name fo the town Cinque Terre, but it looks gorgeous! Definitely worth the stop 🙂
