Day 3 we had decided to eat breakfast at the hotel ( delicious ) and head to Cinque Terre. We took the train from Santa Margarita to the furthest village Monterosso. There is an unlimited train ride option which we purchased. Monterosso is beautiful but due to the tourist influx, become a tourist town.
Edit Edit Edit EditWe thought we could take the ferry from Monterosso to Manarolo but at lunch time the ferry wasn’t working so we took the train to Vernazza. We ate lunch here and then decided we were going to do the hike back to Montirosso. (1:45 m).
The hike was not super easy. This was my first real hike and it wa a super fun but stressful in places where there was nothing to hold on to !
Made it back with my recovering achilles tendon , so all good there.
A drink after this crazy hike followed by a train ride back to Portofino and another dinner at Puny. ( yes – again!).
Off to Tuscany next.
