Italy -- High up on a Cinque Terre Hiking Trail by David.Kamm, via Flickr -- A beautiful view of the distant Cinque Terre village of Monterosso al Mare. We stopped just long enough to capture a few photos from this great vantage point along the hiking trail between Monterosso al Mare and Vernazza. It takes about 90 minutes to hike this segment, with a few steep up/down portions of trail. But the views are worth it, and people of nearly all shapes, sizes, and ages make this trek.

Italy -- Painter in Monterosso al Mare by David.Kamm, via Flickr -- A woman works on her watercolor painting of the Monterosso al Mare coastline on a sunny fall day. This is just outside of town, along the walking/hiking trail that leads to Vernazza, the next Cinque Terre village over. #travel

Italy -- The Cinque Terre Coastline by David.Kamm, via Flickr -- A wide view from an elevated hiking trail just south of the little hillside village of Riomaggiore. We stayed in this village and used it as a home base while exploring the five villages that dot the coastline in this area. At lower right is a very rocky 'beach' with a bunch of people enjoying the sun and water. Not super comfortable for lying around, but still fun to go swimming there.
