Long ago, before Italy’s unification, people have developed a beautiful coast and situated on the top of the Hill of the Cinque Terre.

Because of inaccessible by vehicles, the “hidden Pearl” only to be visited by boat, on foot, or riding donkeys.

Sitting on the train and leave the modern world behind, you will feel like being transported through time. In villages almost without a car, so you can easily visualize about the village from hundreds of years ago.

If enough time, you can walk along the roads connecting every village together. Although this is not the easiest path, but the stunning scenery is also worthy of your efforts.

You could spend weeks exploring these lands, especially when you intend to enjoy walking, but unfortunate that most people don’t have a lot of time (or money) to do.

Everything is quite expensive because it only has a few guesthouses or hotels. Many people choose to explore the area while still remaining in the city of La Spezia, such costs will be cheaper and more environment friendly as well with tourists.

Those who don’t have a lot of time and money, then more and more tour operators, like Florence, Ciao began offering a day trip from Florence.

I love the step along the way is called “La Via dell’amore”, in Italian means “the way of love”.Around the cliffs, the love will bring you the most amazing scenery of Cinque Terre. In my eye is the colourful houses and blue ớc n lane as Crystal.
