While we were planning our trip to Italy so many people told us that the Cinque Terre was their favorite part of Italy that we made it a huge part of our trip. Wikipedia defines Cinque Terre as ” a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. “The Five Lands” comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park…”. Since we made our decision to go there late, and since it was the high season, we spent countless hours searching for the right hotel. But it was all worth it, the Hotel Amici is located in Monterosso al Mare. While it is not fancy by any means, it is immaculate and in walking distance to absolutely everything.
The view from our terrace was not traditionally scenic since we had a view of the surrounding buildings, but for a drama queen like me, I felt like I was actually living in a West Side Story set. The best part of the hotel was the roof top terrace. We spent a good part of our time there with local bottles of wine, looking out on the indescribable view of the ocean.
