In my previous post, I talked about Rome, its history, and the cornucopia of great places to eat. Mrs. CurryOnTravel and I left Rome and headed to Cinque Terre, or “Five Lands”. If Rome is cosmopolitan, then Cinque Terre is rugged. Located in the Liguria region of Italy, many tourists flock to Cinque Terre to get away from the cities and experience the countryside that makes Italy so renowned.
The towns of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso al Mare are the derivation of Cinque Terre. However, there is much more to see other than the towns, and our journey began with La Spezia.
