Day 4 — Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre, which means Five Lands, comprises the five small coastal villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso located in the Italian region of Liguria. They are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
View from Manarola
A nativity scene on top of a hill, steep, narrow stairways that lead to curious doors, bizarre sculptures, charming eateries, zig-zagging alleys, etc — so many hidden gems to discover!
We had lunch in this niche called "Lunch Box" in Vernazza.
Beautiful trip! I am enjoying your holiday pictures :)ReplyDelete
Wow!!!! Heaven of bread....i like that's looking so fresh and hot bread...Your vacation as always has an interesting story Kak Veronica...Hopefully someday i can visit here ^^ReplyDelete
Cinque Terre are very colourful indeed. Glad you had a good time. ⚘️🦋ReplyDelete
The pastel-colored houses was very beautiful!ReplyDelete
Have a nice day, Veronica!
A beautiful part of the world 🌍 for sure. And wherever I go in the world I too have to buy the local breads and sweets.ReplyDelete
What a great portfolio of your travel shotsReplyDelete
The pastel-coloured houses on the cliffs look so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Liguria always looks like the buildings were dropped from the sky and they just settled wherever they landed!ReplyDelete
I've seen photos of the houses on the rocky cliffs but didn't know anything about them. Lovely photos and descriptions - I wouldn't like walking the stairs, too steep!ReplyDelete
I love the view of the colorful houses on the cliff, very picturesque village. I would like exploring the shops and restaurants. The bread and gelato sound yummy. Wonderful photos and a great trip. Take care, have a happy day!
...Manarola is gorgeous, thanks for taking me along for the tour.ReplyDelete
Hello Veronica :=) Your Manarola images are spectacular- It is an interesting place. I love the colourful houses, and the pastries look so good. It looks cold!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day
All the best.
Great report of that special part of my country! I wouldn't have thought of such narrow alleys in the historical part of Manarola. There is also a nice pedestrian area with cobblestones and shops. Thanks for sharing pictures of this particular part of Italy :-)ReplyDelete
Creamy pesto gnocchi is typical of that Northern side of Italian peninsula. Glad to hear you enjoyed that meal!
Beautiful picture of you with your family close to the sea.
All the best, Veronica :-)
Judee from Gluten Free A-Z Blog: I'm really enjoying your photos from Italy. Todays photos are really colorful and such an interesting area.. I'll bet that gnocchi was amazing!ReplyDelete
That is indeed a very lovely area of Italy—both of us never made it to visit there... Working 6 days a week while living in Italy did not leave much time to explore.
Our friend and Lady Chef Maria from Bolzano, Italy knows how to prepare delicious Gnocchi.
What a beautiful place. I would love that view for a couple of week. Wow.ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous day and rest of the week, Veronica. ♥
Me ha gustado conocer este precioso y pintoresco lugar con tus fotos. Unas buenas vacaciones. Gracias por compartirlo.ReplyDelete
Such a marvelous series of shots! I feel like I was there in person!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2023/01/weighing-heavy-on-my-mind.html
Italy is such a special country with so much to see and do and taste! I'd love to live in one of those houses atop the cliffs! What a marvelous view!ReplyDelete
So very charming and that gnocchi!ReplyDelete
I was there some years back, and it is always spectacular, your pics bring back many happy memories, thanks! Hugs, ValerieReplyDelete
That look wonderful! I love all those beautiful pasted houses perched against the ocean like that. Looks pretty delicious too.ReplyDelete
I know everything is real, but when I see these kind of images, I feel something, I can not explain... It's like another universe. It's so nice that you share with us such places. Very special photos.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Veronica!
Happy Today and a fine week! 😘❤️
All those buildings clinging to the cliffs just looks like such a great place to live. I'm sure there are issues for the residents, but it looks from here like so much fun. What a great place to explore.ReplyDelete
Oooh, pally....I am so envious of your travels! Emma studied abroad in Italy for 6 months and this was her first stop. We all want to get to Italy one of these days! Looks AMAZING! (and so do you!)ReplyDelete
Hey! I came up as Anonymous! Well, you know that it was me who wrote that, right? Hahaha!ReplyDelete
The photos of your trip are absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed seeing them and thank you for sharing them. Have a wonderful end of the week.ReplyDelete
A magical, almost fairy tale place, indeed! I'd say that's a memory to cherish and revisit always. Blessings, Veronica!ReplyDelete
Es un bello lugar, te mando un beso.ReplyDelete
It is an unbelievable place! Like out of a fairy tale. I get the feeling that there is never any war or hard times there, just love and beauty.ReplyDelete
wow! such a wonderful place! have a great weekend! :)ReplyDelete
Oh Veronica, this is one area of Italy I've always wanted to visit. I'm not sure my legs would hold up to those hills but it would be worth the pain, I think! It's so beautiful (and the food would be delicious!)ReplyDelete
Oh, these charming pastel-colored houses look like the ones near the Santa Cruz area. They are high up on the hill, and the water surrounding is beautiful. Love the photo of the stairway. All the breads are wonderful, and the Creamy Pesto Gnocchi looks delicious. What a charming place this is. Looks like you are having a great time exploting.ReplyDelete
WOW is everything pretty and I love, love, love those homes on the cliffs!ReplyDelete
oh my gosh, that little village perched on the hill overlooking the water. lovely lovely lovely. i'm captivated by these shots, Veronica.ReplyDelete
wonderful photos... lovely city.ReplyDelete
wish to visit the place one day...
What beautiful photos you have taken from your trip.ReplyDelete
Looks like you enjoyed it, looks like a great place to stay too.
The food looks delicious, I like it.
Those pastel cliffside homes looked lovely, Veronica Lee, and when we travel to Amalfi, Italy, this coming September we may see some similar sights. I agree that exploring through shops and sampling local foods can be so enjoyable. Thanks for sharing more of your trip. Also, thanks for the 🎂 wishes.ReplyDelete
I love all those pictures with the ocean in it. Those stairs look steep. Such great pictures.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the armchair travel! I'd love to try the gnocchi and gelato!ReplyDelete
Just an amazing place/s. Didn't know tourists were permitted to climb up those pathways. Certainly a beautiful views from up there. I wonder how the elderly walk or get down to the bottom to the road! Lovely photos, so enjoyed.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place, fall of charm! Looks like you need good legs to get around there. Thanks for all the lovely photos!ReplyDelete
Buon inizio settimana.ReplyDelete
Beautiful seaside town.ReplyDelete
Oh I am in love.. so beautiful.ReplyDelete
Such amazing photos of this gorgeous place, Veronica! I love your description of a rainbow spilling down the hill. Good food, too!ReplyDelete
Stunning -- the little village perched on the hill is breathtaking -- so colorful .. I love it!! Those stairs! (I don't think we'd make it up these days).... The food looks wonderful too ... I only recently discovered gnocchi for cooking at home and we love it! (I buy the shelf-ready Italian made so hopefully it tastes a tiny bit like what it is supposed to when I cook it!)ReplyDelete
Your photos, again, brought back ,memories to me, Veronica! We loved seeing Cinque Terra. We were able to do the walk between two towns on the hillside during our visit but I think a few years later there were bad rains and the path had a mudslide and closedReplyDelete
wow, this seem to be a place I would love to explore :) Nice shots.ReplyDelete
Love, love, love these pictures and the colors in this quaint, picturesque town. I have a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle that looks just like your top photo of Cinque Terre from Manarola.ReplyDelete
You and your family must be in great shape to have climbed all those stairs.
