Hi everyone! We are currently on our summer trip and having a blast. So far it’s involved 100+ degree days and a 3:30am wake up call, of sorts. That’s all the hints you get for now. Any guesses?? Posts and pictures to come!
Our video from Cinque Terre, Italy.
The beautiful city of Venice has a lot to offer. If you go during the summer, expect plenty of other people to be there with you. It’s definitely worth seeing, however, even if you have to fight the crowds. Here’s a rundown of some attractions you may want to check out in the Queen of the Adriatic.
The day we were scheduled to leave Cinque Terre was one of the few rainy days we had for the entire trip, so it wasn’t so bad that it came during a travel day. We spent about 4 hours on the train, much of which were spent napping or reading. But while switching trains, we did have time to stop for a Coke for Signore Bella Vita.
If you’re planning on visiting the Cinque Terre region, absolutely do it. It’s fantastic. You will, however, enjoy the region much more if you follow these tips.
After Jolyn was feeling better, we decided to check out two of the other villages in the Cinque Terre. First, we headed for the only one of the villages that has a full beach, Monterosso al Mare.
Cinque Terre Pro Tip #1: If you don’t like crowds, don’t go to Monterosso in August.
One of the main attractions of the beautiful Cinque Terre region is the network of hiking paths that link the villages. While it may be easier and faster to take the train from one town to the next (only about 3 minutes stop-to-stop), hiking is much more rewarding.
