Cinque Terre, Italy

 

“With its miles and miles of breathtaking trails, the Cinque Terre along northern Italy’s Riviera has long been a magnet for hikers. And while trekking through the five villages is certainly a backpacker’s dream — each town is a unique destination carved rather amazingly into the steep terraced-vineyard coastline — that shouldn’t preclude lesser jocks from heading to this wildly charming region. In fact, the only way to truly experience the sensory overload that this small area has to offer is by getting off those well-trodden paths. It’s almost unfair how much intense beauty, great cuisine and amazing aromas are jampacked into such a compact space.”

The New York Times, “36 hours in Chinque Terre”
