Why choose Cinque Terre for a visit?
My wife and I have enjoyed several visits to various parts of Italy (Rome, Amalfi Coast, Florence/Tuscany/Umbria) and will be returning for 7-10 days in early June. We will base ourselves in Venice initially (with side-trips), but might look for somewhere else in the north to base for a few days.
- generally favour the Italian history and architecture (over the natural envt)
- have previously visited (and enjoyed) the Amalfi Coast
- live by the beach in Sydney
would the Cinque Terre suit us for a few days, as opposed to other parts in the north?
Some people rave about the place, but others say it just a few fishing villages built into cliffs.
