Some news channel recently included Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy among the places to avoid because of mass tourism. They are probably right: I never managed booking an accommodation in Cinque Terre during spring, summer or autumn. What about winter, then? Enjoy the colors of Cinque Terre, painted out of the sky on each of the five villages.

Passages allow entering the unknown, but not always they lead to somewhere else. This is the case of Sardegna sacred water wells, built by natives around 3,0000 years ago at protection of water sources. Passages can also split what is aside, like San Marco cape: on one side the always calm Mare Morto (dead sea), on the other side the waves of the open sea. Or passages may indeed lead to the other side, but just to let you enjoy the panorama in between. Click each picture to zoom in.
