Italian Holiday | Cinque Terre Photo Journal

Cinque Terre is a gorgeous string of villages meandering down the rugged coast of the Italian Riviera. Boasting locally grown fruits and wines, fish fresh out of the water and sunsets that make your heart sing, we truly fell in love with this region. 

Stroll with us through the colorful Ligurian 5 lands... where the sea whispers secrets on the breeze and the lemons scent the air with sweetness.

The Ligurian region in Italy is the birth place of pesto, and we got to learn the art of making pesto ourselves from the locals in Riomaggiore, the first of the 5 villages linked together by gorgeous walking trails, where after hiking from one village to the next you can stop and have a fresh pesto pizza and a glass of gorgeous local wine from the vineyards blanketing the hillsides all around.

The sea here is a sanctuary for dolphins and whales. You can find free divers, fishermen on tiny boats and lovely purple sunsets on the warm soft waters of the Ligurian coast.
