Rick Steves’ report on Italy’s Cinque Terre

I’m a big fan of Rick Steves. Rick is a Europhile from the Pacific Northwest, seen often on PBS and he is a big fan of, among other European destinations, Italy’s Cinque Terre.

Last year, a few days before New England got socked with a freak snowstorm, the five towns of this Italian coastal area got hammered by catastrophic rains which devastated huge areas in two of the towns through mud and floods that they are still recovering from.

Read Rick’s latest travel newsletter on the rebuilding efforts (and notice the grey).

Think seriously about adding Vernazza or Monterosso to your next trip to Italy. I know I am!

    Floods are terrible. Good to know that the towns are more protected now than they were before.

      Record-breaking weather like this is happening more often everywhere. Floods, windstorms, earthquakes, tsunamis. Seems almost biblical sometimes.

Tell me what you think!
