Photographer's Note

The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) is a National Park that encompasses about 10 miles of the rocky coastline of northern Italy. Within the park are 5 cliff hugging villages tucked away in small inlets. These five villages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore have stood still in time for hundreds of years. Until the second part of last century they were not accessible by car or train, but only by boat or foot paths. As a result the residents adapted to their natural surroundings. Buildings start at the sea and climb the cliffs towards the sky, and terraced hills have been cultivated with vineyards and olive groves. Today the Cinque Terre is a popular alternative to the big towns that dot the Italian and French Riviera.
