We start with the beautiful city called Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre means 5 lands or villages. It is along the Coast of Italian Riviera to the West of La Spezia and north of Massa. The 5 villages are named Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. These 5 villages and the connecting hillsides are part of the UNESCO world heritage sites.
The mountain sides are heavily terraced and are used to cultivate Grapes and Olives. As expected, sea food is a major meal here.
The pictures below are from real life-daring mountain hiking. Covered over 16 miles of hiking but the view is worth it
