Darren and I are off to Italy next week! We'll be spending 3 nights in Vernazza in the Cinque Terre and 2 nights in Lucca (that picture is actually the view from our Airbnb window!). I'm excited to eat my body weight in pasta and gelato, drink lots of cheap prosecco (I hope!), see some beautiful sites and hopefully practice my Italian.

Have you ever been to either place? Weather permitting, we'll be doing some hiking through the villages in Cinque Terre, cycling around the old walls of Lucca and stopping off to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa on our way home, but I'd ove to know if you have tips - especially restaurant recommendations!


  1. The best place to drink a nice glass of prosecco at the tip of Corniglia, there is a promontory with a million dollar view. Bring your own bottle, and cork it, perhaps during sunset preferably in good company! :)
