Cinque Terre Again...With Cathy

Cathy and I visited Cinque Terre. She had seen it on my blog early in the year, and thought it was beautiful, so we planned a trip. We left on Friday morning and took the 2 ½ hour train ride through Pisa and then on to La Spezia. We stayed in one of the small towns on the Italian Riviera. It was a beautiful little resort/fishing town with a bay and a medieval castle. We saw another beautiful sunset there.

The next morning, we went out on a boat which takes you to each of the 5 towns that make up Cinque Terre. I am happy to say that this time it was a little easier, although some of the trails are tough....but it is beautiful. The trails go between each of the 5 towns.

We managed to do ½ of the trails, but opted for the train to the last town when the trail got rough and consisted mainly of an olive grove. In the evening, we were exhausted, but found great seafood at the local restaurants. A nice and very different change from city life in Florence.

That sunset shot is beautiful. It made me really wish I could have seen that one in person. Your pictures throughout the blog have been wonderful. Cheers! Ed
