🇮🇹💚🙋🏻♀️Cinque Terre is mostly known for the perfect insta pics but what is it really like? I went and found out for myself. Sadly, I have to admit, it is a bit overcrowded and quite expensive but I still enjoyed seing it:).Cinque Terre is actually a national park and consists of 5 lovely seaside villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso and Corniglia. We only managed to see 2 of them because of the ridiculous parking and lack of time. Seing Liguria had been my dream for a few years and I couldn´t wait to visit this place. Unfortunately, when you are too excited about something, it never ends up well. What you see on Instagram is probably just a photoshop or very old pictures from the times when it was not popular but reality is a bit different. Do not come with a car, chance to park is almost impossible so it is better to take a train or just walk from one village to another. Also, do not come in the summer, there is way too much people and the experience is definitely not the same when you have to fight for a seat in a restaurant or beach or simply take a nice picture. For those of you who know me, I have an obsession with colorful houses so I enjoyed that part a lot:).Pink ones are the best of course…Most of them look old but it only adds to the magic of this place.Italy is a religious country so church in every village is inevitable.Streets are full of tourists since early morning (locals must be very excited about that:D).You can try a delicious tiramisu or even fish and chips like we did. Prices aredefinitely higher than in the other parts of Italy but one must eat, I suppose…Gardens, vineyards and these views…VernazzaNot very sandy beaches…ManarolaOne insta pic… @bylesileeLooking like a pink candy cotton:DThis cat really got me.Hair in the air…My favourite view…Overall, I am very glad I could visit Cinque Terre and tick off my bucket list. Despite of all the tourists, there is still some magic left. Italy is a wonderful country and this is one of the must-see places. Just not in the summer… I am planning to publish much more from our trip so stay tuned if you like it, alright? Thank you so much for reading and until next time: take care, enjoy your daily adventures and…
