Cinque Terre

Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore. Corniglia was my favorite, but I have very few pictures from there. The Cats of Cinque Terre could be a fun photo essay. Many of the trails are closed and not accessible. It would have been nice if someone had warned us of this beforehand. Great trains. We won’t come back, but that’s because we have a people problem – and there are an awful lot of people here. I guess that’s what you’d expect from a UNESCO World Heritage site. Go early in the day, and hang out in Vernazza before the hordes get there. As Dad said in the afternoon, quoting Poe: “Descent into the maelstorm.” And he (as usual) was right.
