At the start of June, I spent a long weekend in the company of friends and my family down in the stunningly beautiful Cinque Terre area of the Liguria coast in northern Italy. I took a few photographs of Monterosso, one of the Cinque Terre, while the rest of the group lounged around on the beach.
We had a lovely trip, and it was the first time I had managed to see a few of the charming Cinque Terre up close. Here are some of the photographs I took, which, I hope, may encourage a few people to visit this gorgeous corner of Italy. It’s a fabulous place for photographers, artists, as well as families.
The best time to go is probably early June, which is when we were there, or September. May would probably be a good month too, although a spot of rain might limit opportunities a little, although you might be lucky. July and August are probably best avoided as this area will be teeming with tourists, and finding somewhere to stay could be difficult. Still, a boat trip would not be bad idea, and a regular service runs from Genoa.
The Monterosso set of photographs are probably best viewed full screen.
