Via dell'Amore

While in Italy, I hiked through Cinque Terre and came across a charming and beautiful area known as "via dell'Amore" (Lover's Lane). It resides in the easiest section of the Sentiero Azzurro (Blue Trail) which leads walkers from Riomaggiore to Monterosso thru Cinque Terre.  The romantic history attracts many people to this walk and as part of tradition, visitors write their names on a lock then close it on a fence along the trail...  thus, "Locking" in their love forever. Some of my pictures below give you an idea of the gorgeous views to appreciate...
