    OMG I thought CinqueTerre was just a small area of colorful homes on a drop-off to the water. Then, when I go, it will have to be at least a week! Thanks.

    I´ve fallen in love with Cinque Terre and I´ve never even visited. Ha! I long for the day that I´m able to enjoy all of its magicalness. Also, I´m quite the opposite. I typically just go with the flow and don´t make much of an itinerary, ever. But, then again I´m also a solo traveler. I imagine with a family a 5 a plan is definitely necessary. All the food and wines sounds so amazing. Can´t wait to visit someday.

    The place looks gorgeous. With the wine and colorful buildings, I'd just fall in love with Cinque Terre I guess. Btw, is there anything in Italy that won't make you fall in love with it!!!

    The local wine does look yummy. And I like the whole ambience and feel of cafe Matteo. Your description gives it a very friendly feel.

    Like in every single Italian region they have amazing local food and good wine, it could be DOC, DOCG, UTG but it's always amazing to drink it in front of a unique and wonderful landscape! Cinque Terre is must-see during a trip to Italy, but I am sure you will find places more exciting going to hidden and undiscovered locations! Maybe on your next trip to Italy :-D I am Italian, from Sardinia! thanks for sharing

    It must have been nice to travel with three, more food for you guys right? haha. Really cool that you focused on food and wine and not the sites. Each and every place mentioned looks amazing and authentically Italian. Yum!

    I love they have their own DOC wine in Cinque Terre - and could easy pass a few hours/days trying every single varietal drop they had! All the time whilst eating the delicious pizza, pasta and gelato available and gazing at the amazing views. Sounds like the perfect vacation to me!

    oh...if I ever go there, I'm printing out your suggestions for wine bars. I've seen so many stories on this area, but none focusing on food and drink, which, come now, is most of the reason people travel in Italy. I've heard stories as well about how crowded the Cinque Terre is, how (sorry) disappointing, but with good food and wine I think any area should be fine. Thanks, and cheers to you.

    I love that you chose a place that is a little off the beaten path. Si glad they are know for focaccia and farinata bread. Also think that the larsarina looks amazing. Thanks for the great info.

    Cinque Terre seems to be such a colorful town. I will love to trek between these villages and for sure a ferry ride from one end to other. Your pictures are beautiful esp the one with bridges and houses.

    Oh I love Italian food and wine! I want to do all of these things, especially drink the Sciaccherta and eat the frito misto. And I like the deal you have with your husband about getting wine if you go for a walk with him. Sounds fair to me!

    We would love to hike between the villages so this list is being saved for safe keeping! I am hoping to make it there in the near future. Especially since they are limiting tourists either already or soon. Thanks for sharing our tips.

    I would love to visit the Cinque Terre! I love wine and I would definitely go for a focaccia! Anchovies aren't my thing, but there are so many options for food there that I wouldn't be disappointed!

    Great tips. How amazing is the Cinque Terre. I fell in love with it as soon as I arrived and wished I could have stayed here forever. I'd be a good travelling buddy with you - love my wine, expecially in Europe where we find it all so inexpensive. Really enjoyed reading this.

    Oh I would love to have your knack for planning trips just for a day or so - going by the seat of my pants is always how I roll. I'm glad going with the flow turned out to be the travel preference for beautiful Cinque Terre :) I'm eyeing all of those glasses of wine with such stunning backdrops! Gimme!

    Cinque Terre really is a little piece of heaven isnt it. We spend almost a week based in Vernazza early one spring and even though half of the town was shut down during the week the restaurants would take turns to open each night so there was always somewhere to go. We never had a bad meal. Restaurante Belfort is fantastic and not just for the view.

    As a fellow wino, I fully support your choices to punctuate walks with wine! I haven't made it to Cinque Terra yet, but after reading this I just might need to take a little wine and dine trip!

    This area of Italy is famous for pesto and for trofie - a particular type of pasta. I love Liguria, but you shouldn't leave without trying the pesto - the best in the world

    I did not make it to cinque terre but the food I had during my time in Italy was amazing. My favorite was anything with truffles. Cinque Terre is definitely on my list for my next trip so will keep your recommendations in mind. Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard.

    Ah, I ate at Nessun Dorma and Belforte, both fantastic! We booked a couple of days in advance for Belforte to get one of the best tables up in the tower itself - definitely worth the wait!

    I visited Cinque Terre a few years ago and it was definitely one of my favorite places in Italy!! I actually took the ferry from one end to the other and luckily got to see the beautiful sunset!!

    OK, now I'm properly properly hungry. I love all the recommendations for cafes, restaurants, little wine shops that do tastings... all look so wonderful. I'm not a big wine drinker, though my husband is, but oh my gosh I love dessert wine so I perked up even more when I read about Sciaccherta, I'd not heard of that before and it's one I now really want to try!

    Italy has so much diversity when it comes to food and wine! That's why it's always a great idea to go local: you will make sure to drink and eat the best stuff! I'm glad you had fun here!

    Cinque Terra is magical, so much more than one even expects it to be. Foccacia and basil...I can live on those!

    The kind of food that you eat often determines our experience when traveling. If I'm not happy with what I am eating. I'm usually grumpy. That changes the way I see things. Great article. Keeping this for when I travel to Italy

    I could perfectly imagine myself seating at the Resturante Belfort in Vernazza, eating seafood, having a glass of red wine and listening a 'canzone'. Beautiful scenery, delicious food, tasty wine and great company - that's 'La vita e bella' ! Thanks for sharing great tips, bookmarking them!
