hkskyline's 2010 CINQUE TERRE - Italian Coastal Hiking #3

Manarola - a beautiful town perched above the rocks next to the sea.







Admiring the rugged Italian coastline.



A different type of urbanity.















We were surprised to find the main coastal trail between Manarola and Riomaggiore to be open, and didn't charge admission either. Too bad it was only a short, 20-minute walk.



Plenty of tunnels were built to let trains pass by this region at ease.

















Although it was the 'coastal' trail, we weren't walking next to the water, but still perched above it. A fall from this height would likely mean death.





This was my first encounter with graffiti on plant life. I saw plenty of it on and inside trains already, but not like this!





Here we are - the party town!





These don't look like fishing boats though. The restaurants along Riomaggiore's waterfront really destroy the Old World feel.













This town is not so perched above the sea, but gradually descends into it. At least the height difference between boat and door was not so great.
