Photo of the Week: Vernazza, Cinque Terre

Hiking the Cinque Terre, five small villages in the Italian Riviera, should be on everyone's bucket list.   Our decision to hike the Cinque Terre was made after seeing the Travel Channel feature the region's beauty and charm.  As impressive as the Cinque Terre looks in photos and video, nothing compares to seeing it in person.

This photo of Vernazza was taken on the challenging hike between Vernazza and Monterosso.  The steep climb between the villages is well worth the payoff; beautiful views of the Cinque Terra.
