Italy- Day 13 Cinque Terra

Cinque Terra is made up of five small towns along the coast. You can either take the train from town to town, or you can hike the Via dell' Amore, between the towns. We got up early and took the train to the first town and began the hike. He's me in my "geologist" get up:

The rocks along the walk were amazing. To one side were these huge, layered cliffs, that would fold you in like a womb.

The streets and trails were so steep. We actually hiked straight up these terraces a little ways, looking for an olive oil museum, which we didn't find. But the views were spectacular.

Manarola (I think)

I couldn't get over the color of the water.

We made it to Corniglia, which is about in the middle of the whole long hike, then hopped a train back to Monterosso, for an afternoon on the beach.
