Cinque Terre

June 16

We are in Manarola one of 5 tiny villages in the Cinque Terre. This is the Italian Riviera: quaint, casual and utterly relaxing.

It is pedestrian only, no motorized vehicles and we haven't seen any bicycles either. It is built on the side of a cliff overlooking the Ligurean Sea. Below is a view from our hotel room. Note the boats "parked" in the narrow streets.

The water is crystal clear, cool and refreshing. We arrived yesterday evening and will stay until the 18th. I will fill in more details each day.
