"visit the Cinque Terre, 5..." Europe Favorite Tip by ViolinGirl

Europe General: 595 reviews and 454 photos

Favorite thing: visit the Cinque Terre, 5 quaint fishing villages overlooking the Ligurian Sea in NW Italy (between Genoa and La Spezia). The trails that connect the five towns allow the (rather conditioned) hiker to traverse vineyards growing on nearly vertical slopes, and catch spectacular views of the sea.

Fondest memory: I have to choose one?! Okay, what I miss most about traveling is the exhilaration of jumping off the train at a moment's notice when I spy a promising locale--one of the best gambles was in Voss, Norway, where I biked to the Tvindefoss waterfall and soaked up more natural beauty in one day than is good for a person's health.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
