Staying at one of the bestest hotel in the entire world and personally my favourite, Marriott Milan offers road trip to Cinque (5) Terre (Land) with up to maximum 6 persons. One of the girl bailed on us, we had to pay 90 euros instead of 75 euros at the end of the entire trip. The following pictures I will show you the five villages of Cinque Terre which was worth every euros to be here, with the awesomely good weather. One thing good about the road trip is that it brought us right to the top, whereas the train stations doesn’t allow you to get here unless you decide to hike up, which then will take hours just to be on top. Our first stop was to visit Monterosso, known for the bestest beach area amoung the five villages: Corniglia, Vernazza, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Our driver, Mr Lino, was very kind and drove us all the way to all of the five villages, trust me, it is not for motion sickness people as the roads are so curvy I nearly puked while on the way up.
Shop house along Monterosso. We had to complete the entire tour which only led us to being here for about an hour to sightsee.
UP NEXT: CORNIGLIA
Mr Lino had made reservations for the five of us here at La Posada, where they served fresh seafood and good pasta. We had the usual Spagetthi Frutti De Mare (Seafood Pasta in Italian) and it came in a huge serving for all of us to share! Buon Appetito!
The crowd that squeezed through those tiny walkways in Corniglia. Mr Lino recommended the famous gelatos ice cream, had award winning reviews and also good reviews on trip advisor, Gelateria served delicious gelatos.
Walked up about 20mins just to take in this view before we headed back to the van where Lino awaits us.
UP NEXT: VERNAZZA
Yes, if your guessing if that is the train station, you’re right! Look how jam packed it is going to one village to another I’m sure you’ll be squashed like sardines.
Beautiful Vernazza and its shop houses. Really glad I found some magnets and souvenior to bring back to my new home.
The hype area of Vernazza, people were swimming, suntanning, taking a cruise at the boat taxis and just soaking in the sun.
Breathtaking, ain’t it? 🙂
UP NEXT: MANAROLA (my favourite, been dying to be there eversince we started the tour, at every stopover I asked Lino if we’re going to Manarola next.) He replied, “You, manarola manarola manarola.” “Now, manarola, YAYYYY!” Italian man who could only speak a few words of English made my day. I told him, ” I LOVEEEE MANAROLA!” *inserts widest smile*
Always seen this beautiful Manarola on Pin Interest and Yahoo Images, never would I thought that I would actually be standing here witnessing the amazing architecture of this village. Known for their colourful houses, manarola has got to be the most beautiful village in Italia.
Finally a picture of my crazy colleagues, Elroy and Evon.
I would love to come back here on a holiday and join these people, cliff jumping at the rock edges and suntanning!
The amazing company I had while it lasted, together with Evon and Priscilla, group shot with Manarola at the back! I’m in love with these fish eye lens.
Selfie with the magnificient Manarola. Ok I promise, one last time!
UP NEXT: RIOMAGGIORIE
Our full day tour had officially ended with a sunset, imagine having a driver and still shagged from all the walking about. Nevertheless, pretty much worth it to be here during the summer.
Goodbye Cinque Terre. Til we meet again.
