Vernazza in November by erwina

This is the gorgeous village of Vernazza, on a rainy day in November. Vernazza is one of the five villages to be found in the gorgeous Cinque Terre, Italy. We spent a wonderful few days here, and is where myself and my lovely wife got engaged… and what a place to do it.

This photo is from my pre-SLR days and was taken on a compact Olympus minimju 4mp. A sturdy camera, but not adverse to misfortune, on this particular trip it landed in a bowl of natural yoghurt. And yet it never missed a beat (or shot)

(from wikipedia)

The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. “The Five Lands” comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible “modern” development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach it from the outside. It is a very popular tourist destination.
