Cinque Terre – Cultural fusion

By Carol / May 27, 2011 /

My last two blogs about Cinque Terre have been ‘off the beaten track.’ In fact, the area is a delightful fusion of traditional Italian architecture where buildings climb hills and cling to cliffs, where life is in, on and from the sea, where you enjoy excellent food,  and art, and where tourism abounds.

Here is a montage of sights of the five villages of Cinque Terra. My recommendation? See it if you can!

In Cinque Terra, you’ll see: Every day life in the midst of tourism.

Eat amazing food.

Sample Limoncino made from from local lemons.

Appreciate arts that reflect a maritime history.

Find religion at every turn – and at the top of every mountain.

Enjoy tourism based on the most incredible blue sea.

And if you’re lucky, find your true love. After all, what would Italy be without love?
