We drove three hours to Cinque Terre today. Whitney always wanted to visit this area so we ventured out. Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the Italian Riviera coastline. There are five towns that all have colorful houses and ancient vineyards on steep terraces. We took a speed boat or the local train to get from town to town. The Mediterranean was bluer than blue today. Just magical. Speaking of magical, we stumbled on an open air concert tonight of classical music in one of the towns. We were serenaded as we dined at the restaurant under the stars next door.
