Cinque Terre is a place in Italy, about 100 km of Genoa, Cinque Terre means “Five Lands” and it is composed by five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore now part of the Cinque Terre National Park.
This year I wanted to visit Cinque Terre, while I am heading to Spain, but unfortunately there was some very devastating flood in 5 October. The video is in Italian, but you can clearly see the mess it caused.
Also there are heavy floods in Genoa. Maybe we need to alter the road completely this year.
Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre is a very popular tourist destination.
The villages of the Cinque Terre were severely affected by torrential rains which caused floods and mudslides on October 25, 2011. Nine people have been confirmed killed by the floods, and damage to the villages, particularly Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare, is extensive.
