We are currently enjoying our last 24 hours in Rome, but before heading out for an evening in the Trastevere, we thought we’d post our photos from our brief stop in the Cinque Terre.
If you haven’t heard of the Cinque Terre before, it is truly lovely – five coastal towns, connected by hiking trails, full of cute shops and good food and views of the Mediterranean Sea.
We stayed there during sort of an odd time, however. The official tourist season had ended, so a lot of places were closed, and there were only a few other visitors wandering around. Overall, however, it was well worth the trip.
Near our hotel:
Walking down the hill in the tiny town of Manarola:
Jeffrey and boats:
Really really high waves. The waves were so high, in fact, that the hiking paths between Manarola and Corniglia were closed.
Anna and the Manarola hillside:

Hey look, we found ducks!

Sunset, as seen from our hike between Monterosso and Vernazza, lightened up in Photoshop just a bit. P.S. Don’t do the Cinque Terre hikes at night.
