The Cinque Terre

Five lands, a trip between sea and nature

The Cinque Terre are one of the most uncontaminated natural Mediterranean areas of Liguria and the Tyrrhenian coast. Five miles of rocky coast hold among two promontories, five villages perched on stone spurs in minuscule creeks: Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso, suspended between sea and earth, clinging on magnificent cliffs.

Viticulture, characteristic of the area, has helped to create a unique landscape with traditional dry stonewalls, typical of the hills overlooking the sea and with bays, ravines and enchanting beaches between cliffs.
The Cinque Terre are a National Park and a World Heritage protected by UNESCO since 1997.
