36.3 Cinque Terre: Italy's Hidden Riviera In five idyllic port towns, Rick Steves samples village life: fishing for anchovies at midnight, savoring the best pesto, picking grapes, and cheering cliff divers as he hikes the "walkway of love." Each pastel town is a delight, but a favorite is Vernazza--where Giovanni makes pasta and Granelli sells porcini mushrooms at the tiny street market. Rick sidetrips to Carrara's quarries, where Michelangelo selected his marble, then returns to Vernazza to stroll the only street (with the entire village) as the sun sets.

Visitors climb the Reichstag's new glass dome, sway at a modern-day cabaret, and pop a few chocolates in the now-thriving eastern sector. Along with Germany's finest art, complicated Berlin also has hidden remnants of its fascist and communist past. In a city that's rebounding and rebuilding, Europe's newest Times Square--Potsdamer Platz--inspires many craned necks.
