The Cinque Terra consists of five villages clinging to the rugged Ligurian Coast. Most folks visit here to hike from between the five villages along a windy coastal train. The small village of Vernazza was our base, the fourth of the five towns town going up the coast. We got off the train after emerging from a long tunnel and found the town spilling down the hillside towards a beautiful little cove. We spent a few days in this village sampling their infamous pesto, white wine, and fresh local fish. It was a bit rainy out, so we only hiked one day. VERY NICE hike though of course we were caught in a downpour before reaching the train station to return to Vernazza.
