Vernazza — My Favorite Gem in Cinque Terre

Vernazza, Cinque Terre

Vernazza is my favorite of all the five Cinque Terre villages.  My pictures tell it best.

The sea was glistening hundreds of feet below the bluff, absolutely jaw-dropping.  When we recovered control of our jaw muscles,  we dove into the best bruschetta in Italy.

  1. Vernazza is without a doubt on my must-visit places! It’s sure going to be hard to leave this heaven in a week (though selfishly I can’t wait for you guys to be home)!
