Itinerary Overview

Italy is known for its good food, its tasty pasta and its inimitable prosecco, so I decided to immerse myself in the Italian cultural life for a few hours. This led me to visit the city of Milan, the world capital of fashion and design in northern Italy. Milan is the metropolis of the Lombardy region in northern Italy. It is also the financial center, seat of the Italian Stock Exchange. I discovered the gothic cathedral of the Duomo of Milan and the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which houses the fresco of Leonardo da Vinci, the famous "Last Supper".  Three days were enough for me to determine the contours and discover the character of this city. To discover the wild and natural side of Italy, I chose to go to the west coast to discover the famous Cinque Terre and its impressive cliffs. The five lands designate five municipalities that are located on the coast of the Levantine Riviera. The "Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre" (National Park of the 5 Lands) includes the villages of Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. These small villages built on the edge of the cliffs in a vertiginous way and the facades of the very colored buildings finished convincing me by the diversity and the Italian sweetness of life.
