The next site on our agenda was Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is cluster of five "sister towns" on the west Italian coast. What's special about these towns is that there are walking paths along the coast that connect them so that you can hike from town to town. That is what motivated us to hop in the car and visit them, but unfortunately the paths were closed due to weather damage. We still had a wonderful day however (I mean, how is it possible to NOT have a good day when on vacation in Italy?), with one of the coolest things being this marble mine we passed on the way to the towns where they were mining real Italian marble!
We drove to Tuscany the next day and so didn't see a whole lot that day (except for the gorgeous countryside), but we did have the opportunity to visit a really neat walled medieval town, San Gimignano, for dinner.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
