We were tucking into dinner when the farmer's wife rushed into the kitchen mid-secondi and wildly urged us to join her in the stable to watch a calf being born.

Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre in northern Italy are a series of five small fishing villages dug into the cliffs where the Appenine mountains meet the Mediterranean coastline. Each village is set between the beach and the hills and has its own special characteristics. There are almost no cars and being hard to access has helped to protect their unique heritage. It is on 15th century footpaths high above the sea, that you will explore the Liguria National Park. The extensive network of trails connecting the villages pass through olive groves and terraced vineyards, with sweeping views of the vast expanse of the Mediterranean below. There are few walks in Europe which capture so many highlights in such a compact area.
