Because the towns are built on terraces, there are countless stairs to help get you higher and higher. In the pictures you can see a bunch of lines in the mountain side – those are paths they created to reach their garden area and for some… their home! It was worth working those gluts to get some pictures from up high, but I’m glad I don’t live there!
Cinque Terre in English means Five Lands (essentially). There are five small towns (Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore) along the coast that were pretty much built on cliff and scale the mountainside. But, it’s very picturesque and loved taking pictures around these towns. There is a PACKED train that runs to each of the towns shuttling all the tourists. You can also get to the towns via boat, but that’s besides the point. These towns thrive on the tourism that comes by the thousands.
