Cinque Terre

You feel half-tempted to respond to that deep-sea Siren call with one wide-armed jump, but are pulled back to reality by dusty earth, terraced vineyards, and a well-trodden path to a colorful, welcoming village.

  1. I spent a day in Positano and I've never been so car sick! All those winding roads so high up on the cliffs were breathtaking but not tummy friendly.
