Cinque Terre - Part Two

On our second day, our plan was to take the path that goes along the sea and connects all 5 towns. Unfortunately, the path was closed due to a land slide. We were really bummed but we heard about a path that goes up into the hills that you can take in between towns instead. I love a good hike so we decided to try it. Oh man. This was the steepest, most treacherous path I've ever been on. It took us almost 3 or 4 hours to get to the next town which was apparently only a couple miles away...

This is only about 45 minutes in and you can see how high we climbed already. The views really made this part worth it!

Europetrip 939

This was someone's cute little house! I would love to live there! You would never be overweight because the climb to your house would keep you in shape!

Then we ended up in some dense forest and didn't seem to be getting any closer to the next town! We just kept getting further and further into the forest.

This is how far we were from Vernazza at this point but still not close to Corniglia...

These are all of the other villages. We were so tired by the time we got to Corniglia, that we took the train to the other 3 towns. It was fun to see all of the the other towns but it just reinforced that we had picked the best one! We had a nice dinner to end our time there and then we were up in the morning to head to Florence!
