A Real Lover’s Lane

By Linda Tancs

In this Valentine’s Day edition of Travelrific®, it is only fitting to highlight one of Europe’s great romantic destinations–no, not Paris.  The subject is Cinque Terre (five villages), nestled along Italy’s Mediterranean province of La Spezia.  The five villages are Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.  Along the way between Riomaggiore and Manarola lies Via dell’ Amore (lover’s lane), a hiking trail resplendent with ocean views that demands your full attention.  Just don’t expect to lounge around these sometimes steep trails with your grappa and focaccia.  Save that for later.
