Monday, March 7, 2011: University of South Carolina Choir & Shadow Tours enjoy a full-day excursion by train through Cinque Terre

The University of South Carolina Concert Choir, Friends, and Family are in for a very special treat
today, as they take the train to visit four different Italian towns in Cinque Terre region.
The travelers transfer from their hotels this morning to La Spezia, where they will catch a train that will take them to the towns of Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. The train will stop in each destination, allowing the travelers time to explore each new destination before ultimately heading back to their hotels at the end of the day.
The Cinque Terre, meaning “Five Lands,” is a rugged portion of the coast along the Italian Riviera. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillside are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park, which is a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site noted for its beauty and lack of “modern” development.
