Next stop: Cinque Terre
Oh the famous area of Cinque Terre, where no car can drive and where *La Vita è Bella! * (Life is beautiful!)
Since getting there takes about 2.5 hours from Florence, we had a short stay in Cinque Terre.
Cinque Terre means Five lands. In Cinque Terre National Park, there is five small villages: Monterosso al Mare (being the farthest one), Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore.
We took the train to La Spezia and then took another train to Monterosso al Mare.
In Cinque Terre, you can hike from one village to the other. Since you are going uphill from the first village to the fifth one, the farther you go, the harder it gets! We, of course, decided to do the hike between Monterosso al Mare and Vernazza!
