Knowing how much I love to travel, I do not exaggerate when I say Cinque Terre is one of my favorite places to which I’ve ever traveled. I first came to this charming village 25 years ago, traveling solo, and instantly fell in love with everything about the area. So, It was a dream come true to finally get to come back and spend three perfect days in Cinque Terre with my family.

Three Perfect Days
As you can see, we only really had one busy day during our three days in Cinque Terre. For the most part we spent our time soaking in the atmosphere. To my delight, the town of Vernazza ended up being our daughter’s favorite stop of our European travels, much as it was her mom’s 25 years earlier. Vernazza goes to show that you don’t have to fill up your itinerary in order to make lasting memories. Our perfect three days in Cinque Terre weren’t packed full of excursions, cooking classes, or hikes. Instead, they were filled with relaxing, eating, and enjoying La Dolce Vita.
