Vanessa Hudgens is living la dolce vita.

The High School Musical star, 27, recently took a dreamy road trip around Italy with her longtime love Austin Butler, 24, and in true social-media star fashion, was Instagramming gorgeous vistas (and her own gorgeous self) all the way.

The beautiful couple hit several stunning locales including Vernazza and Monterosso (two of the coastal villages that make up Cinque Terre or “five lands,” a UNESCO World Heritage Site), as well as Portofino, Florence, the island of Elba, and Villa Rignana, a 17th-century former monastery in the Tuscan countryside. Heading to Italia (or just playing on Pinterest)? Be sure to check out all the spots the stars stopped on their grand tour.


“Then we hiked Cinque Terre,” Hudgens wrote of this clifftop snap, where she took in the colorful facades of Vernazza and the Mediterranean Sea. Trekking may have been her only option to reach this Riviera view; the historic village is car-free.


Hudgens shared a sunrise panorama of the picture-perfect coastline of Portofino. If you won’t be making the trip to Italy any time soon, there’s a full-size replica of the harbor at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. Can you really recreate that light, though?


Hudgens and Butler took a break from the beach at Villa Rignana, a former monastery in the Tuscan countryside. If you’re feeling flush, you can rent the nine-bedroom estate, or keep it relatively low-key in the guest house.


Butler captured a stop in the southern village of Positano on the celeb-frequented Amalfi Coast. Gwyneth Paltrow, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, and Emily Ratajkowski have all recently visited.
