2. Higher Hikes: Cinque Terre
It’ll be good to get back to the great outdoors minus the winter gear, so head to Cinque Terre, Italy to hike Sentiero Azzurro or the Blue Trail, one of Nat Geo’s picks for world’s best hikes. Spring’s the best time to go since the weather's just right and the place isn’t yet teeming with people. You’ll hike along the Ligurian coastline past vineyards by day and drink the Cinque Terre white wine made from those grapes by night. Don’t miss a dip in one of the swimming holes along the coast.
