Images of Cinque Terra

These images of Cinque Terre were taken during a trip to Italy in May 2004. The walking tour through Cinque Terre was organized by Experience Plus.

Cinque Terre (Five Lands) is a series of little inlets at the end of the eastern side of the Ligurian Riviera. It is a breathtaking composition, a mosaic of a thousand shades, the old houses with their characteristic colors clinging to rocks that drop sheer to the sea or perched on imposingly jagged hills, everything vying to touch the sky, lifting our gaze to the famous terraced slopes contained by drystone walls.
