For some people, there’s nothing as exciting as traveling to foreign lands and visiting places you’ve never been to before. It isn’t just about taking pictures against the gorgeous local sights. It’s spending time in local pubs, eating delicacies native to the region and basically having the time of your life, getting to know different parts of the world and the people–the culture–that live in those parts.
One such fascinating place is the Cinque Terre. If you want something that’s off the beaten path, has great views and gives you beach time under the sun, head this way. Here are some tips to help you plan the best Cinque Terre trip ever:
Know the local meal times
If you’re going to be in the area for quite a while, then pay attention to the closing dates and times. Shops and restaurants often have days they’re closed down. Know what these days are so you can swing by the grocery or market instead.
Ask around for help
It can be a bit of a struggle to pay for food or order in a restaurant. If you don’t speak Italian, just take the time to observe how the locals do it. Ask for help. Don’t assume anything.
Book private tours

Go on day trips
