    Cinque Terre | 214 Photos

    After our adventures in the narrow streets of Lake Como, we drove south through Milan, past Genoa, and stopped to visit Cinque Terre (CT), a chain of 5 towns (Cinque = Five) on the ocean. We started in Monterosso del Mare (selected because we could park there; CT is not an area where cars are needed). We took a ferry along the west coast of Italy to see the rest of CT. The boat ride was rocky and I was really nervouse because I get sea sick, so I kept my eyes on the shore. The seas were too rocky to stop at any of the other cities in the CT. The girls had a blast, though, at the front of the boat with the wind in their hair. We got some shots of Porto Venere and then the ferry docked in La Spezia. We walked quickly through the city and took the train back to Monterosso.

     

    Let's start with photos from Monterosso al Mare, part of the Cinque Terre. We arrived in October on a beautiful day in the 70s, with a few brave folks swimming in the chilly waters of the ocean.

    Next, shots of the Cinque Terre taken from the boat.

    The following photos are from Porto Venere, adjacent to the Cinque Terre.

    And some shots of La Spezia, a city adjacent to the Cinque Terre.

    It was a long day! it was dark by the time we got back to our car in Monterosso and drove off to our hotel a few hours away in Tuscany. We started at about 9am in Lake Como and didn't get to the hotel until about 11pm.

    More photographs from our trip to Italy.
