Cinque Terre


Cinque Terre [?t?i?kwe ?t?rre] comprises five small towns (hence the name, which translates to “Five Lands”) on the western coast of Italy in the region of Liguria, just above Tuscany. Situated within a national park, it’s characterized by terraced agricultural land and colorful towns that appear to rise from the Mediterranean Sea.


comprise: to be made up of (something)  构成、包含

  • Cinque Terre comprises five small towns.

(be) comprised 

  • Cinque Terre is comprised of five small towns.


hence: for this reason, therefore 因此

  • I am feeling sick; hence, I can’t work today. ( therefore

  • It is winter, hence the snow. (hence + noun

  • Today’s my birthday, hence the cake.



Monterosso al Mare


Monterosso is the northernmost town; it’s the biggest and the flattest, so it’s the best option for those who have mobility issues. Monterosso is made up of an old town, a new town, lots of sandy beaches, some larger hotels and a long seaside promenade suitable for strollers too. If you want to avoid stairs and have a more “resort” feel to your vacation, then you should stay here.


noun + issues: problems or concerns 问题

  • money ~, relationship ~, family ~, health ~

  • I’ve been dealing with a lot of money issues lately


promenade: a public place for walking especially along a beach 步行的一条大道,通常是在水边的。

  • 香港的星光大道 Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade,

  • 上海的外滩 The Bund


…feel: a particular quality  某种感觉

  • This restaurant has a bohemian feel.



Vernazza


Vernazza is the most picturesque of the villages, and as a result, probablythe most overrun by tourists in the summer months. It has sandy beaches (albeit much smaller than Monterosso’s) and is also mostly flat, but mostplaces to stay here require a lot of stair climbing. 


overrun: to enter and be present in (a place) in large numbers  量多,泛滥

  • This restaurant is overrun by cockroaches (小强).

  • During the Spring Festival, East Nanjing Road is almost always overrun with tourists.


albeit: even though, although  虽然

  • It’s an excellent computer, albeit expensive.



Corniglia


Corniglia is the smallest of the Cinque Terre villages, and is the only one
of the towns not directly on the water. High up on a cliff, there are more than 350 steps to climb from the train station, but there’s also a small bus that ferries visitors up and down. Because of its less accessible position, and, since it has no beach or marina, it’s also slightly less tourist-y than the others.



on the water: near or close to (something or someone) 靠近水边的

  • a restaurant on the water

  • a hotel on the sea


-y 加在名词后面变成形同词

tourist-y = touristy

  • Orange-y, pineapple-y, soy sauce-y, medicine-y

  • This soup has a strong turnip-y flavor. 这个汤有很浓的萝卜味。



Manarola


Some of Cinque Terre’s most iconic photographs are of Manarola’s marina, with its cascade of colorful houses tumbling down towards the sea. There’s no beach here—instead, people sunbathe on the rocks surrounding the marina and cliff dive from craggy outcroppings in the water. 


iconic:  widely recognized and well-established 被广泛认知的

  • Gucci is an iconic brand name.

  • The Ford Mustang is an iconic car. 


sunbathe: to sit or lie in the light of the sun especially in order to make your skin darker 日光浴

  • Be sure to use sunscreen before sunbathing.


cliff diving  悬崖跳水

cliff jumping

Skydiving 空中跳伞



Riomaggiore


Riomaggiore, the southernmost town, has a similar look to Manarola, but a slightly livelier nightlife in the summer—outdoor DJ nights and concerts are frequent on weekends here. The beach is rocky, but the water is crystal clear, and a 45-minute hike up the hill at the top of town brings you to the santuario, a church with a panoramic vista all the way back to Monterosso.
