Another in the series of posts about the 5 towns of Cinque Terre I visited last year. Although famous for being the most beautiful of the Cinque Terre towns, in 2011 a massive landslide tore through the main street and the marina of this mountain-side town. When I visited, the entire ground floor ground and first floors were gutted, with locals carrying out mud and plaster by the bucket load. The town is recovering, but it’s still incredibly beautiful.
It rained the entire day of my visit, but that made the sky and the views even more spectacular. I climbed the side-streets to the top of the town and took the path up the mountain. These are some shots of what I found along the way.
Following up form my previous Cinque Terre travel posts, the last two stops on my Italian adventure were the gorgeous little towns of Corniglia and Monterosso al Mare. Despite the grey and the rain, I managed to enjoy the atmospheric views of the dark clouds and the stormy sea.
