The Love Walk
Ah, the beautiful Cinque Terre or the ‘Five Villages’ in Liguria. If you like trekking, authentic Italian food and wine and some great scenic views – do not give this beautiful coastline a miss.
The section of the trail from Riomaggiore to Manarola is officially called the ‘Blue Path’. There is a local legend that says that lovers from the two villages used to meet halfway. They also had a custom of tying a lock together and throwing the key into the ocean – a very symbolic way of locking your love forever.
People all over still follow this as you can see in the shot. Makes sense that the Blue Path is more famously known as ‘The Love Walk’.
A picture maybe a thousand words but sometimes the back story enhances it to a different level.
