I always hear horror stories about people getting their wallets, phones, or even entire purses stolen in Parisian metros. I had prided myself on avoiding thefts… until last night.
After Cinque Terre, we took a long trip to our next destination, Sorrento. Our overnight train from Cinque Terre was three hours late (which meant we left at 3am), so we were beyond exhausted and passed out at 8pm that night. If you’re planning to book trains in Italy, leave some room for delays as they seem to happen quite frequently. The silver lining is that we woke up extremely early and caught the first ferry to the beautiful island of Capri.
Ever since our friends honeymooned in Italy, Cinque Terre and the Almafi Coast have been near the top of our travel bucket list. We started the trip off with 3 nights in Cinque Terre. Known for their picturesque views, the five colorful towns are situated on cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
