Cinque Terre, Italy

There is a coastal path that connects five villages called Cinque Terre. They are on the Italian coast. Each city is different but nice with colourful houses being built into the sides of the cliffs so they look out over the sea.

To get to Cinque Terre, you have to walk a coastal path that runs between the sea and the villages. The path goes in between the villages six times. It has great views of the sea and the countryside around the villages.

But you can also take a boat on the sea along the coast and see the villages from the edge of the sea as well.

Also, in Cinque Terre, you can really taste some good seafood dishes, as well as local wines. Local anchovies and pesto, prepared from the local basil, must not be forgotten at all.

Hallstatt, Austria

Hallstatt is an overjoyed pretty village. It is located in Austria. There is a great lake and mountains surround it. One side of the village is a big lake and another side village itself is surrounded by huge mountains.

Also in one of the mountains works an old salt mine. This final mine also dug for a long time. Anyone can visit inside without charge and accept information about making and selling saltimine.

Besides its enchanting walks, Hallstatt is full of beautiful old buildings and churches, many of which line the shore of its picturesque main square and boats.

Shop-lined and café dotted colourful houses hug the waterside village ready to amuse, from quaint stores and cafes or even a lake ride on a boat, stopping at nearby salt mine hiking views overlooking the city and surrounding hillsides.

Sintra, Portugal

Sintra in Portugal. Town of pastel houses known for colourful palaces and garden excess. Reluctant town nestled in the hills above Lisbon, Sintra glances down over its rural plains perched on a luscious Mediterranean hillside below.

The town proper exhibits a stock of monumental palaces rivalling it: Pena Palace, for example, is painted lavender and orange and perched above the town.

Other points of interest include the Moorish Castle of the 8th century, the gardens and tunnels of the Quinta da Regaleira estate, the majestic hilltop and mountaintop Palácio da Pena, and the historic centre. Traditional pastries include the queijada and the travesseiro.

But Sintra also attracts tourism because of a plethora of cultural events and festivals that have been taking place for at least the last century: concerts at the Palácio Nacional de Sintra, exhibitions in the Castelo dos Mouros, music, theatre and fireworks for New Year's Eve.

Perhaps the best walk that we did during the trip to Sintra was above the tree line, to the summit of the Serra de Sintra (at 527 metres), which sounds much more boring and dry than the reality was.

The summit of the ‘mountain' has huge appeal for many who visit the town, whatever their initial reasons for coming to Sintra. As I continue to live in rural Lisbon, Portugal has become my truly local environment.
