Cinque Terre

Italy at its best

Today we rode the train and went into the hills to the Cinque Terre. This is an area of several small fishing villages built into the hills. These villages gee, but building up steep mountain faces. You'll see in the pictures I attach that they are not very big. There are about 600 people that live and work I these villages. Each morning he fishermen take their boats out and catch fresh fish that the restaurants cook up and serve to the many tourist that arrive. Each village was beautiful and unique as you will see by the pictures below. The train ride was the worst part of the journey as it was standing room only due to the tourist. The villages are spaced so that you could hike to them all thorough the mountains. Unfortunately we did not have the proper attire to do this, but it is definitely a very popular thing to do.

Here are some photos of the train and villages we visited.

This is our agenda for tomorrow, our last day of the group tour

This trip is winding down and we will soon be heading home.

Nighty night,
