37 gorgeous photos of Italy's coastal gem, Cinque Terre to inspire your wanderlust and make you bump Cinque Terre up your bucketlist for 2018! #italy #cinqueterre #photos #travel #europe #bucketlist

If you’ve ever been on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen Cinque Terre.

It’s widely considered to be one of the most picturesque, magical places in the world, and is on many travelers’ bucketlists. For good reason! Cinque Terre boasts vibrant, colorful buildings, fresh seafood, handmade pasta, local wine, kind and friendly locals, gorgeous hikes, and absolutely insane views from all angles. Who wouldn’t want to visit?! I mean, seriously.

But when I first saw photos of Cinque Terre years and years ago, I fell head over heels. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I knew I had to go see it in person, no matter what it took. When I was planning my crazy two month European adventure back in 2015, Cinque Terre was one of the first places I put on my list!

I took about four bajillion photos during my week there (a rough estimate), but I’ve finally pared the pile down to only my favorite snaps. Check out some of the best moments from my time in Cinque Terre below. And go slow…imagine the warm summer sun, an Aperol Spritz in your hand, and as the Italians say, revel in il dolce far niente – the sweetness of doing nothing. If only for a few minutes. Enjoy!


 

Now, I only officially started blogging this year, but believe me, I have some detailed-as-heck notes from my time in Cinque Terre that are making their way into a full blog post guide to these five beautiful villages, don’t you worry! That guide to Cinque Terre will be coming soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from my time there.

P.S. My favorite villages were Vernazza, Riomaggiore and Monterosso, though the other two are veeeerrry close behind. All five towns are simply gorgeous, and require their own exploration. Vernazza in particular just spoke to me. Maybe it was the fact it’s where my favorite pesto pasta and amarena gelato were located. Ahem.

 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed walking down memory lane (with myself) and hope you enjoyed it too! Much more on Cinque Terre (and lots of other European cities) coming soon to a blog near you! (This blog, guys. It’s this blog.)

I hope you gained some bucketlist inspiration and these photos of beautiful Italy boosted your wanderlust, even just a little bit. Get out there and travel!
