After doing all the rounds of the Italian museums, churches and art galleries, we had decided that we needed a break from it all and headed down to Cinque Terre. Meaning 5 towns, this remote chunk of the Italian Riveria is traffic free, museum free its just sand (pebbles!), sun, beaches and gorgeous little hilltop Villages. A perfect place to relax and unwind, its also the homeplace to Pesto, so we also indulged in quite a bit of Bruschetta as well!
White in Cinque Terre, we stayed in Monterosso, the largest and most north town. We stayed in Manuels Guesthouse - a ramshackle guesthouse run by an artist and his nephew. Sitting at the very top of the town, we were lucky to score the room with a balcony and the photos above were our incredible view. It was just perfect, such an incredible little part of the world
