Cinque Terre – The National Park of Cinque Terre is a uinque landscape where the hills are carved into green terraces that descend toward the water. Cinque Terre is a Unesco World Heritage site (it became a Unesco site in 1997).
Cinque Terre with its five picturesque towns are not the classical tourist resort. Everything there is like it was in the past and the main attraction is the landscape. In fact, this area of the Italian Riviera influenced and inspired many artists such as P.B. Shelley, DH Lawrence, Lord Byron.
The five towns are amazing with their characteristic pastel colours. Cinque Terre will fascinate you also for the steep terraced hillsides (dry walls that keep the steep hills from falling into the sea) overlooking the sea!
Our ligurian tour guide will lead you through these five lands starting from Riomaggiore, the last village as you approach from the north. If you are coming from La Spezia it will be the first village you come to.
Riomaggiore is linked to Manarola by an easy trail known as the “Via dell’ Amore”. Along this trail there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the view among the noise of the waves smashed against the cliffs.
Then, you will walk among vineyards, olive groves and terraces man-made where the protagonist is the mediterranean vegetation and reach the picturesque village of Vernazza. Vernazza was once the most prosperous village of the Cinque Terre. The historical centre conserves beautiful architectural elements as lodges, arcades and portals.
Finally, Corniglia and Monterosso villages will complete a uinque experience along this part of Liguria. Corniglia is located on a hundred of meters high steep promontory, close to a hill with many vineyards, from which it is possible to admire all the other four towns of the Cinque Terre.
Monterosso has beautiful beaches, steep rugged cliffs and crystalline waters. This is the biggest village of the Cinque Terre.
