On my last work trip I went on a tour my company calls Europe’s Mediterranean Coast; the first stop was Cinque Terre. I explored four of the five villages with 20 students from outside of Chicago. I loved walking the villages, eating fresh seafood on the seaside, and drinking Aperol Spritzers.
We started at Riomaggiore then headed on to Manarola; next was Vernazza where we had lunch and then the group finished in Monterosso for some shopping.
I came for a good time, not a long time—about eight hours to be exact.
