Now that the semester has been underway for two months, students have been taking advantage of Perugia’s proximity to destinations throughout Europe. This weekend, three students travelled to Cinque Terre to hike between each of the five towns and to wade in the coastal water.
Tyler Pace (Connecticut College) shared his photos and reflections of the Italian riviera:
“It was a totally amazing weekend… Granted, Perugia is a wonderful city–but’s it’s nice to be able to get out every once and a while, into the fresh air, into the mountains. Florence and Venice, among other cities are definitely the hotspots, but not much compares to Cinque Terre. Being there was like something out of a book–old towns that sit right on the edge of the water, castles high above the Meditterranean, cities still virtually untouched by the outside world. Every turn on those narrow paths sets you up for a breathtaking view that you’ll remember for the rest of your life… ”
