Check out our recommendation for the best place to stay and our guide to hiking in the Cinque Terre. If you’re debating between the Amalfi Coast and the Cinque Terre, see our comparison here.

      Thanks for checking out our post, Renee! As we (hopefully) have gotten better at photography, I wish I could go back and take more photos. I wouldn’t mind more hiking, swimming or more of the delicious food either. 😉
