The long and narrow pastel color houses, perched on the rocks overlooking the blue Tyrrhenian Sea, are one of the most  distinctive features of the Italian Cinque Terre.

The 5 lovely villages along the stunning coastal path, from which the name ‘Cinque Terre‘ derives, look like a lovely watercolor, the tiny little streets with the ubiquitous laundry hanging out the windows are charming and the little wooden boats evoke the close by past of a harsh region populated by fishermen, winemakers and farmers, working hard to ensure their own subsistence.

Every town has its own charm, but Vernazza occupies a special place in my heart.

    So beautiful and a photographer’s dream. I’ll be walking part of the coastal path in October. I’m hoping we see your favorite village, Vernazza.

      I look forward to see Alan’s (if I understood well, he is the official wonderful photographer…) shots! Enjoy your Italian journey. Such a pity we won’t meet…
