The lovely Cinque Terre coast in Italy is definitely worth a look. We took the tourist boat along the coast starting and finishing at Le Spezia. We stayed in La Spezia as it is less tourist orientated, so quieter. I was not so well at this point so was unable to walk along the Cinque Terre as we had planned, but I don't think I missed out. I was still able to get off the boat at Monterosso for a while and then enjoy the view from the boat to return to La Spezia. We also enjoyed a brief stop at Porto Venere. The boat was a great way to view the rugged Italian coastline and snap the colourfull villages from a good photo distance! Worth the effort.
