Winter in the Cinque Terre gone viral
Like in all of Europe, also the Cinque Terre is tight in the grip of the cold. The Cinque Terre in winter gives unusual beautiful colors and atmospheres to the landscapes.
Winter in the Cinque Terre is usually mild, a good option for those who like travelling to Southern Europe in this time. Winter 2018 is being quite cold though and has also brought snow to the landscape, giving unusual atmospheres and views. The typical fresh and clean air of winter, the long perspective on the sea horizon, the breathtaking sunsets are some of the highlights of this time.
A viral video has spread in the local social media of a guy skying in the setting of Portovenere, for a very spectacular effect of snow and sea (instagram video by lillysucci):
The Val di Vara hinterland offers Northern Europe awesomeness, with its large woods covered in snow and freezing air. The long early sunsets and the nice atmospheres once sheletered in the welcoming villages of the valley allows to feel far away from the Mediterranean Sea, which is actually just behind the hills instead.
Portovenere, Tellaro and all vilages in the Gulf of poets colorful houses stand out of the grey sky and horizon for a romantic journey.
Finally, the snow has fallen also in the city offering some totally unedited views.
