Cinque Terre: Photo Collection

Oh the colors of Cinque Terre! My partner and I collected a lot of photos throughout the Cinque Terre trip. From Monterosso to Vernazza to Porto Venere. Here’s a collection of those photographs we put together. Enjoy, share, like, comment! If you ever get the chance to travel to this amazing seaside area I suggest going in September/ October when the weather isn’t too hot and the tourists are at a minimum. The cloudy sky gave us a dramatic background...

We drove several miles through the windy vineyards of Chianti Tuscany and at the top of this small hill was a piccolo (little) medieval town.
