cinque terre or 'the five lands" is formed by five small and enchanting villages on the italian riviera. the villages together with the coastline and the surrounding hillsides are part of a national park under unesco world heritage patronage. getting there by car was quite the adventure. the small villages are quite isolated and the access roads are narrow and sinuous and some have been severely damaged by the floods last year. on our gps the roads looked very much like a bowl of spaghetti. our first stop was in levanto, the doorway to cinque terre. we took a strol around town and on the beach promenade and i dipped my toes in the mediterranean sea. we saw a glimpse of vernazza from above and headed towards manarola for dinner. manarola seemed like the typical fishing village, extremely charming and quite famous for its wines. i went for a vintage inspired look which seemed very vacation appropriate. given the surroundings i couldn't help but feeling we were in an old movie.
