Having raced, and I mean RACED down the trail linking the five villages of Cinque Terre, we made it in just under seven hours and ALMOST beat the storm. We got pretty wet on the last leg, and lightning on the train ride back let us know we just made it in time. Later that night the trail was closed for a week or so due to mudslides. As I go back and edit some of these images from the trip, I pretty much ache to get back here…
I love Cinque Terre, and Riomaggiore was a great way to end the jaunt.
