It must be that time of year, our page on strolling the Cinque Terre zooms to the top of the heap.

What's the most popular travel video on Wandering Italy? It's the funicular ride that gets you to the Santuario Basilica Nostra Signora di Montallegro high above Rapallo. See the video and plan a trip. This little adventure is in Liguria, the coast of which you know as the Italian Riviera.

What's becoming one of my favorite regions of Italy to visit now has a Map: Emilia Romagna. Find out all about the big and small attractions in the Po River Valley and the Appennino reggiano, part of the Apennine Mountains that forms Italy's backbone.
