For many centuries the villages of Cinque Terre were only reachable by sea. When young lovers wanted to meet they had to take a different path to do so in secret. A network of mule tracks connected the villages over the hills and vineyards. After dusk these were the paths lovers could take to finally meet their loved ones. Today the lovers’ lane is a favourite hiking route for many, its romantic past became history.
The region of Liguria is characterised by many little villages scattered across the landscape. They are little planets of their own, all of them different yet charming in their own ways. Some impressions from July 2021.
Lerici is situated at the southern end of the Gulf of La Spezia, sometimes called Gulf of Poets as well, since it is known for renowned writers such as Lord Byron spending time here.

Wandering Cinque Terre you experience a diverse and beautiful coastline, rough and steep at times and smooth in other places. Photographed in July 2022.
