Cinque Terre, Italy Gallery - Photo Highlights of Italy

It may still sound like “Cinque Terre” is a recent secret that’s been let out of the bag, but the rumors have been spreading for quite a while already. We didn’t expect to find too many people heading out to this area to hike the trails, but we found out that it is already a major tourist hotspot. There is good reason why it has become so popular, but it is still less crowded that the Amalfi Coast, and it is quite a bit different than that one. Here are some highlights from our two days in Cinque Terre. If you are interested in downloading a copy of one of our images without the watermark, you can find them at our page on iStock.

Italy is one of the most traveled to countries in the world, and it’s no wonder with all the movies it shows up in! From A Good Woman (Amalfi Coast), Only You (Amalfi Coast), Under the Tuscan Sun (Positano and Tuscany), The Italian Job (Northwestern Italy), The Godfather (Northeast Sicily), The Talented Mr Ripley, A Room With A View, Tea With Mussolini, Much Ado About Nothing, the 1950’s hit Roman Holiday, Letters to Juliet, the James Bond film Quantum of Solace, and of course the first stop in Eat, Pray, Love.

You can even grab a travel guide for Italy, such as Fodor's The Amalfi Coast, Capri & Naples, Rick Steves Snapshot Naples & the Amalfi Coast: Including Pompeii, or Lonely Planet Naples, Pompeii & the Amalfi Coast (Travel Guide). Learning more about the culture of Italy using the Italy - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture book is also recommended!
