Before I have been in Cinqueterre, I heard a couple of times by people that was one of the destination spots in Italy. But during my stay in Italy, I have never heard by any Italian about this touristic spot for visiting. Then asking locals I’ve got information that Cinqueterre is more popular out of Italy. (more…)
Italy is the country where people live the longest after Japan (the average age is 86) with the life expectancy at age 85.
