Cinque Terre

Hiking the trails that connect the five cliffside towns of Cinque Terre was strenuous but worthwhile for many reasons, not least of which were the views and invigorating sea air.  A further highlight was the secret Guvano beach, reached via a train air tunnel beneath a rocky ridge.  Although a bit scary to walk through, the old tunnel led to a gorgeous secluded beach.
