Another favorite spot

Probably our favorite destination - the Cinque Terre in Italy. We visited here four years ago during Easter break and shortly before Luke's graduation from BFA. It comprises five villages that are located on a rugged portion of the Italian Riviera. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Part of its charm is the lack of visible "modern" development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach it from the outside. If you enjoy hiking, this is a great place to visit. We hiked the path that connects all 5 of the villages. The views are spectacular!
