The 9 Most Hands-Down, Drop-Dead Gorgeous Photogenic Places In Italy


If you ask us, the largest of Cinque Terre’s five swoon-worthy fishing villages is also its most visually arresting. Those gumball-colored buildings built mesmerizingly into the cliffside? That teeny-tiny harbor? We mean, come on. For a full day of breathtaking views, buck up and take the epic hike between all five of the towns.

Oh right. And snap a zillion photos.
