IELTS Cue Card Sample 372 - Describe a colourful place you went to

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a colourful place you went to.

You should say:

  • where it was
  • why you went there
  • what you did there

and explain why you think this place was made so colourful.

Model Answer:
I have visited numerous places and cities both in my home country and abroad but the most vibrant and colourful place, in my opinion, is Vernazza which is a small town in northwestern Italy. I still feel the animated landscape and bright scenic beauty I witnessed there. This place was so colourful that every photo we took there, later looked like a beautiful postcard. Lemon yellow, pastel pink and sea green façades dot the coastline of Vernazza and the four other scenic waterfront villages that made up Cinque Terre was something I will never forget. I have never seen such beauty in colours and I can compare it only with the colours of a garden full of flowers and butterflies.

I went to Vernazza as part of our tour plan to visit the famous tourist destinations in Italy. We had an initial plan to stay there for few hours but the loveliness of Vernazza simply took our heart away and we stayed there for a couple of days.

The most significant thing I did there was appreciating the beauty and rich colourfulness of this place. I ate my lunch and dinner in a local restaurant and had a boat trip in the evening. We did fishing as it is one of the truest fishing villages on the Italian Riviera. I also visited Doria Castle, Chapel of Santa Marta and   Vernazza's beach.

It would be quite hard to express the beauty and vibrant colours of this town. Lively mixtures of colours were everywhere. The houses were coloured in red, yellow, pink, green and lemon-yellow while the water around the town was deep blue. In the hilly area, there were green trees and flowers of different colours. The boats in the bay and water were coloured with all the colours of the rainbow and the sky was deep blue.  I have never seen any place as colourful as this town was.
