My cousin, Diana,  is venturing to Italy this summer.  After I got over my of jealousy, I was incredibly excited to hear she was heading to my favorite destination: Cinque Terre.  Although it is still a touristy location, it is often missed by tourists who can barely cram in time for the big 3: Rome, Florence, and Venice.

A full post of the beautiful Cinque Terre hike – and my experience with Karen and others – is soon to come.  Until then, here are a few eyegasms as a sneak peak.

Where we stayed for the night – Riomaggiore.

I definitely consider the five villages of Cinque Terre a must-see in Italy, and after you see the pictures, you will hopefully agree.

Full post of Cinque Terre soon to come!
