Our World was once Cinque Terre

Constituting one of the most scenic areas in Italy, the five hillside towns on the Ligurian Sea known as Cinque Terre definitely captured our hearts. After catching glimpses from the train enroute from Milan to La Spezia, we allowed ourselves a full day of hopping on and off trains at each delightful stop.

That is definitely one place I'd like to visit again. We did it from the boat so next time I'd go by train. Great photos!

By the exquisite light seen in all these shots it appears you had perfect weather to photograph and enjoy the hillside towns. I think there is a castle (or church?) high up the rocky cliff … what a view it must be from there as well as from the train windows. Nice to know you can both still hop, by the way … not so sure about me. :)

Sounds magical, traveling by train and hopping off at each stop. This part of Italy looks like a perfect place for such fun!

Some people should not have beards. Even in statues! It doesn't suit!

Grace said...

Love the pictures Kay ~ I hope you had a good time ~

Loredana Donovan said...

Great photos. I especially like the last one, beautiful. This looks a bit like the Amalfi coast, where my husband and I visited. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip! :)

Jim said...

Thanks for the memories, Kay.

That pink building behind the statue looks liked it could be the hotel we stayed at in Levanto.

Beautiful photos, Kay! Who does the statue represent? It is intriguing, because it's such a great sculpture.
Thanks for your comment. I wish you too a very great week.

Terrific images. And hopping on and off trains in a scenic area seems a fantastic way to spend a day. BTW, don't anybody try that in the UK: You would get stuck in a siding somewhere, waiting for hours to trundle on to the next station. :-(

I loved seeing all your travel photos, Kay. I haven't been able to visit much lately because I OVERborrowed Kindle books from the library. I had them on hold and they're showing up at the same time. Yikes!!! I can't keep up.
