Don't forget to pack some shoes suitable for walking/hiking along the cliffs between the towns on the Cinque Terre.
When we were walking, we saw one lady in high heels about to set off.....we advised her to turn back!
Photo Equipment: A camera is a must. The coastline is spectacular. Digital is best - that way there is no limit to the number of photos you take!!
A sarong is a lightweight, fast-drying article of clothing that can be used in a variety of ways. Lay on it at the beach, then use it to dry off after a swim or to cover up that new sunburn.
Bring one with you, as they sell for minimum 10 Euro in Monterosso.
