668. Day 16 of 28 | Arriving in Monterosso, Cinque Terre

After Pisa, we went to Cinque Terre. It was a destination thats been on my list for a long time and I was excited to finally be there. The place consists of 5 different villages, built on the edge of cliffs and full of colourful little houses. We stayed here for three nights in total. The first day, we arrived in the early evening. The place we stayed at was in Monterosso. At first I wanted to stay in Riomaggiore or Vernazza (as those are known to be the most beautiful villages) but I'm really glad we ended up at Monterosso instead. It's the most easily accessible and largest village (even though it's still super small) with the most restaurant options, beaches, etc. & it was the most "walkable" which is convenient when you are a traveller with luggage. At the other places you'd have to carry your luggage up and down staircases and the buildings seemed older. I really loved Cinque Terre overall. I loved literally every place we visited during the trip but the three days here were a few of the most memorable for me.

The weather wasn't looking that good when we arrived. It was forecasted to rain/thunderstorm all of the days we were there..but we ended up getting super lucky because it was hot and sunny each day instead. Literally the opposite of what the forecast had said. Cinque Terre is definitely best enjoyed without the rain (as with most places..but especially here hahha).

We stayed at a place called MiaChi which was really really nice. I highly recommend it if you are visited Cinque Terre. I loved the blue and white interiors of the room. It was only a quick ~7min walk from the train station.

After checking in, we headed out again to the old town in search of dinner. The place we stayed at was on one end of the village and the old town part is on the opposite end. Since it is such a small place, it only takes about 15min to walk from end to end.
