Pomp And Circumstance

A Broad Abroad: Italy – The Cinque Terre Part Due!

Posted in A Broad Abroad, Fashion Files, Inspiration, Pomp Day-By-Day by Miss Pomp on October 25, 2012

After recovering from our late night out and day of hiking, we spent our second full day in the Cinque Terre checking out the 4th and 5th towns – Manarola and Riomaggiore. It was a sunny, beautiful day (although a bit windy and chilly at times), and there was nothing better we could have done than ambling along the coast (and eating lots of yummy things along the way).

I never met a statue I didn’t want to mimic

The hike from Manarola to Riomaggiore is known as the Via Dell’Amore – “Love Walk” – couples fasten padlocks to this chain-link fence and throw away the key to symbolically lock up their love.

We stopped here on the Via Dell’Amore to picnic…. A baguette, prosciutto, brie, pesto, and a nice bottle of red wine… life doesn’t get much better than that.


Husband – “Let’s go down by the water”

Me – “Okay”

I titled this one “Consequences”

And another highlight of the day – we had the best gelato of the entire trip in Riomaggiore. I mean, of the ENTIRE TRIP. We stopped at Gelateria Centrale, and had Fragola (strawberry) and Fior di Latte (literally translating to milk flower) gelato that would have literally blown my socks off – had I been wearing socks.


If you have a good gelato place, I’d love to hear about it, I’m willing to travel pretty far for a delicious gelato.
