Cinque Terre have everything needed to make me weak at the knees: blue sea, colorful houses, flowers everywhere and delicious focaccias! I had an instant crush on these colorful palettes by the sea!
"Cinque Terre" means five lands: this name is referred to the five centuries-old seaside villages on the rocky Italian Riviera coastline.
Before leaving I asked for some practical info to some Facebook travel groups; in particular, saraesploratrice, pretapartirconchiara and mangiaviaggiaama have been very helpful: they gave me a general idea about how to move there through their articles.
Yes, I know, I'd never been there and I should be ashamed, but I've fixed it now, haven't I? 😝
When we visited the Cinque Terre we were based in Pietrasanta(Tuscany): from there we took a regional train to La Spezia. At La Spezia station we bought the daily Cinque Terre Card for 12€ each, which gave us free access to the train running through the lands, the bus in Corniglia, the public toilet and the National Park area.
Then, because I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (FALSE, I'm just quite methodical, understood Marta?!) I wanted to visit the Cinque Terre in order starting from North 😏 And with this order l'll describe them here on my blog (which is also beautifully tidy as I like it!)
