Genoa to Cinque Terre

When we were planning our trip Allison highly recommended that we visit Cinque Terre. So that’s where our travels took us today. It is stunningly beautiful. Cinque Terre is a string of five villages on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. You can hike between them or take a train that connects the town via tunnels through the cliffs. Here you can see our train leaving the station. We are staying in Manarola. 

We are staying here three nights. The hotel Duke booked for us is awesome. This is the view from our room out onto our terrace. 

The lady at the tourist information office explains that the hike from Manarola to the town south of here is only about a kilometer but it is all steps up and then steps down. We hiked and she was right. We went up up up sometimes climbing on the rocks. The views were stupendous. 

For dinner we ate at a little ten table seafood restaurant that we had to climb up to and then walk along a pedestrian path to get to. We shared home made pasta, and crab.
