Cinque Terre and Emilia-Romagna were two best places that we visited as a potential couple with my lovely boyfriend. He knows what I love more than I can express it myself. In fact, he is able to express what I really love in places to visit and attractions even before I tell him what I desire. My boyfriend and I started planning for this wonderful visit a very long time ago.
We wanted to see the places that most people were talking about as very serene and unique with the wineries to taste the unique delicious wines, good theatres to have the great shows, marvellous tours to enjoy the thriving walks, breathtaking towers to climb and so much that will trigger your adrenaline when you know about. We even started saving so much money every month so that we could be able to enjoy everything without any financial strain. I was eagerly waiting for this visit to Cinque Terre and Emilia-Romagna until the time for the trip came and we had to go and enjoy ourselves. It was quite wonderful, perfect, fantastic, magical, serene and heavenly that I am already longing to go back as I give you this story of our visit.
I went to Parco National Cinque Terre to visit the national parks. This is a very good place to have a breathtaking hike that you have been longing for. If you are still young then you need to try this and enjoy the uneven trail. Don’t wait until you become too old to climb a mountain or to walk this trail because you will struggle so much and it won’t be possible. This trail was not for the weak, unfit and fainthearted because it was certainly very tiring but worth the adventure. We are both young and very fit so we really enjoyed it. We booked the hiking tour and it was such a pretty distance that made us to enjoy the activity so much. We also moved from La Spezia to Monterosso by the train which was very comfortable and awesome to travel with and that was a great adventure.
We booked the Walkabout Florence Tours for a great tour in Florence Cinque Terre. This is the best tour of the place and to the tower that you can ever have. We were very enthusiastic about the tour when we started. My boyfriend and I were very eager to see what was awaiting us in the tour. We had a walking tour in Siena, we visited the medieval town of San Gimaignano then we had lunch at with some good wine tasting of the desert wines, reds and white wines at the Poggio Alloro farm. We also visited Pisa and had some good time climbing on top of the tower. We actually requested for more time to climb up the tower and we were very pleased by our guide who was very understanding, knowledgeable and very social. He was actually a very friendly person to have a tour with. He was also very funny and he helped us in everything we needed.
Another hiking trail with Cinque Terre Trail! This is great to move between the villages as you enjoy the serene and wonderful places in the village. We started this very early and we managed to see all the five villages and by the afternoon, we still had much time left to enjoy a good hike and a very relaxed delicious lunch together. We eventually took a train to Riomaggiore and we really explored the town as my boyfriend took several photos of some iconic scenery. When I see those photos, I just feel like going back to Cinque Terre to have more of the trailing and the tours again. We then decided to just have a walk steeply uphill for about thirty minutes where we were just walking through the grape vines and the forests as we took the coastal view. This was so lovely.
We also visited the Cantina 5 Terre in Cinque Terre. We actually had a chance to see the winery and have tastes of different kinds of wines, spirits and beer. My boyfriend loves white wine so much and he never wanted to miss this chance of getting to drink the wine. On the other hand, I just love red wine and it makes me feel very good and relaxed. We really enjoyed because there was everything for each of us. We were even shown how the wines are made and refined and at the end of the day, we felt so good about the tour. If you are a fan of wine, then this is not the place to miss when visiting the Cinque Terre. You can just spend some one hour tasting the wines and getting some good knowledge about that wine that you have been taking.
We decided to go to Emilia-Romagna to continue with our vocational tour visit in other parts of the country. We headed to the Enoteca Regionale Emilia Romagna to continue with the wineries since the previous ones left us with some hangovers that we really needed to sort out. This is a very good place to actually see, taste and even buy the wines. We actually bought and tested the wines at the same time in that place and it was just amazing. We got the opportunity to taste the good Italian wine. It was very wonderful and we even bought some in case we needed more with our dinner. We realised that there were very many restaurants near the rock that were really nice in the evening and we spent good part of the evening in one of them feeling very romantic and relaxed after taking the god Italian wine.
The following day, we moved to Reggio Emilia to see the civil centres. Getting to this place is very easy and you can actually take a trail which passes through the Milano-Bologna line and you get there so fast. The trails are also very nice and comfortable. This is such a great town to explore and learn a lot of history here. There are also delicious food cultures to enjoy at an affordable price. We actually enjoyed being in this city and having the view of great sights in the city. We took some lovely piazzas which my boyfriend loved so much and the food was very fantastic. We also did some little shopping of some of the goods in this place that were very admirable. This place was so awesome with everything so good like the cultural food, the history, the wonderful sights of the city and the shopping.
We wanted to wind it up with the theatres and we therefore we went to the Tearo Municipale Reggio Emilia. This place has very lovely theatres with individual boxes that are so beautiful and well decorated. Our guide took us right through for a look and the place was so elegant. We were not able to have the shows for there were no shows at the moment but we actually promised to back very soon so that we will be able to watch some lovely shows in that elegant theatre. It can be very good for casting a great play and being that my boyfriend is a great actor he loved it so much. He actually acts as a part time job apart from his regular profession of accounting. He is a very funny man and he tried to act alone on the stage of that wonderful theatre for me to watch his show for five minutes. It was just so funny and crazy of him.
That is how fascinating the trip became in this part of the world. This is something I really enjoyed in my whole life and I longed for the next time that we shall have another visit to these places.
