Start to discover the five villages!
Try starting in Riomaggiore. Famous for its 13th-century character and local wine, the town has unique architecture with narrow cobble alleyways and sheltered paths.
Then, head to Manarola via the “Via dell’Amore” the ‘Path of Love’, a genuinely moving and romantic walk where rocks crash into the sea as you stroll above them. The small port town is filled with picturesque buildings clinging to the ravine.
Continue to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered “The Pearl of the Cinque Terre”, where you will be awed by its enchanting beaches and the lush vegetation surrounding them. Don’t forget to bring your swimwear because here you’ll want to plunge into the crystal sea and sunbathe before heading to Vernazza, a beautifully quaint town right on the water.
On a trip to Cinque Terre you can expect vibrant and colorful boat rides, unforgettably elegant villages, and beautiful hikes through some of the most flora and fauna in Italy.
