Vernazza

I will never understand travel agents and the way they planning the itinerars. Instead to get down at Riomaggiore, which is only 9 minutes far from La Spezia, we went down at Vernazza after 20 minutes of ride. But, later on that day we will find out that the trip which is called "Cinque Terre Tour" has nothing to do with that name.

What was the plan of a day?

The gruop gathered at some sort of small square where the guide told us to have one hour of time for sightseeing Vernazza. It is quiet enough to see all of this small village but, on the other hand, not enough to climb up on the hill above the place and take some panoramic pics.
The rest of the plan was to visit Monterosso, staying there about 2 hours, and then went back to Manarola. Corniglia wasn't in that plan at all!

Strolling around

Vernazza is one of those places we all fall in love at the first sight. It was around 10am when we arived and the place wasn't crowded with the tourists already. The place is very charming predominately coloured in a pastel colours.

    I am so glad you got to see it before the mudslides and floods. It looks horrible now, I cannot even imagine. By the way, Merry Christmas old friend!
