The Cinque Terre is a photographer’s dream with its five colourful villages, dramatic coastal scenery and spectacular sunsets. Don’t just visit for the photo ops – the food is to die for!
The only problem is that you won’t be alone in admiring the scenery, the Cinque Terre tends to be densely packed with tourists.
I loved it so much I’ve written a bunch of posts with all my best tips:
But it’s not just the Cinque Terre and surrounding National Park that will have you reaching for your camera, the whole coastline (known as the Italian Riviera) is dotted with incredibly scenic beach towns and villages, and big port city Genoa has its fair share of cobbled ochre streets. So I encourage you to explore the wider area. A few of these photos are from Portovenere and Levanto, towns on either side of the Cinque Terre and well worth a visit.
