9 Apr , 2015  

The Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Astronaut Centre recently took a beautiful picture of La Spezia and the Cinque Terre during her ISS Futura Expedition she is taking part to.

In the picture, You can distinctly tell Portovenere and the islands of Palmaria and Tino.
The view of this land from above is fascinating, it shows clearly how here the coastline changes from the flat, fluvial shores of upper Tuscany to the jagged coast of the Cinque Terre.
One tip to locate the beginning and the end of Cinque Terre: they start in Riomaggiore, a little further after Portovenere and the islands and they end in Monterosso and ” target=”_blank”>Punta Mesco, the first big coastline outcrop.
