photo diary: cinque terre part II
a couple weeks ago, i shared part I of my Cinque Terre photo diary from earlier this year. this was undoubtedly one of my favorite trips i've ever taken, and considering i've been walking around NYC this week in 24 degree weather i thought it might be time to share more photos of these summery, sun-drenched italian shores. for the second part of our time in Cinque Terre, we stayed in Manarola, one town north of Riomaggiore (where we spent the first part of the trip). we did a lot of hiking along the cliffs which was breathtakingly beautiful, and ate an outrageous amount of pasta. so hopefully those canceled each other out. here are some highlights:
Here's a list of all of my favorite things we did for this part of the trip (surprise, these are all food places):
Nessun Dorma - amazing charcuterie and incredible views of the town. go at sunset and you WILL get amazing instas.
Dal Billy - definitely the best restaurant we visited all trip. if you're into squid ink pasta it was to DIE for. call in advance as they get super super busy and it's a small place.
Belforte - unbelievable views and amazing food right over the Ligurian sea on the cliffs
Ristorante Ciak - had amazing pesto gnocchi here
KMO - stop here for farm to table amazingness- get a cheeseboard and some bruschetta
after Cinque Terre we ventured on to Florence and Venice- will be sharing those pics soon too!
