One visit to ITALY just isn't enough unless you can stay for a whole year which would be absolutely "perfecto."

WIth summer just around the corner one of the most gorgeous places to visit in ITALY is CINQUE TERRE. This Italian Riviera with its five picturesque villages clinging to breath-taking cliffs is the perfect place to have a vacation.

While in the Cinque Terre region be certain to swim in the water, snorkel, enjoy the few sandy beaches, and hike the famous trail known as the Via deli' Amore. For a more challenging hike that can take up to five hours try the "Cinque Terre Trail."

Accommodations fill up quickly in Cinque Terre so it's wise to book ahead for a room at a hotel or private home. The five villages that make up the Cinque Terre are Corniglia, Manarola, Monterosso al Mare, Riomaggiore, and Vernazza.

One can easily enjoy a relaxing week in the Cinque Terre without leaving the vicinity but a good day trip is a visit to PISA where one of the most photographed towers in Italy is located; the Leaning Tower. The leaning tower, ((Campanile) is an eight story carved architecture wonder with open-air arches. Other top attractions in Pisa are the Battistero and Duomo.

With its breath-taking cliffs, charming fishing villages, stunning walking trails, spectacular seaside views and relaxing atmosphere the CINQUE TERRE region of ITALY is the perfect
place to spend a vacation you'll never forget.
