The early autumn weather on the Italian Mediterranean has some of the intense heat taken out of it. Perfect for a day for exploring the Cinque Terra.
The easiest way to explore the five villages of the Cinque Terra is by train and foot.
There had been a storm in the Mediterranean overnight with gave a cool breeze.
And some uncommonly wild waves for the Mediterranean. Both at Vernaza and Riomaggiora
There is a series of walking paths the connect the five coastal villages of the Cinque Terra.
I chose to take the coastal walk from Vernazza to Corniglia and enjoy the coastal views
And the views were worth it.
I visited three villages.
And Riomaggiora which I think was the most beautiful
This was really the last part of this adventure as now a tired piecemeal adventurer and a tired mighty Breva wind our way back to England.
An overnight in Boccadasse a little piece of the old Mediterranean in Genoa.
Before catching the ferry to Barcelona
And the sun sets as the ferry says goodbye to Italy for this trip.
