Ahh, the Cinque Terre is what Italian dreams of are made of. Are you daydreaming of sun kissed colorful homes by the seaside, fabulous seafood, gelato by the sea, pesto and limoncello for days? The Italian Riviera is not short of rugged coastline or romantic towns and villages with the villages of the Cinque Terre being one of its main attraction.
