Local drivers along the steep coastline of Italy’s Cinque Terre honk before going around tight corners.

It was rainy the afternoon we drove through Cinque Terre, a popular region of northwestern Italy that includes a national park and a cluster of towns on a jaw-droppingly beautiful portion of the Italian Riviera.
Cinque Terre has become so popular among tourists that Italy decided to start limiting the number they allow to visit.
Time only allowed us a few glimpses of the five towns nestled on the water, but here are some photos from the tiny road through Cinque Terre and the town just south of it that many visitors use as a base, La Spezia:
Have you visited or lived in Cinque Terre? I’d love to hear your impressions!
