Things to do in  Cinque Terre

Welcome to Cinque Terre

Hemmed in by the Ligurian Sea to one side and coastal cliffs to the other, the Cinque Terre’s five candy-colored fishing villages (Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore) have remained virtually untouched by the passage of time. Visitors spend their days exploring the UNESCO-listed towns via the scenic walking and biking trails or historic rail line that run between each or skirt the coastline by boat or kayak. Wine tours and cooking classes in the area’s steeply terraced vineyards and gardens also top the to-do list.

#1
Vernazza

Vernazza

star-56,947
Arguably the most picturesque—and steepest—of all the Cinque Terre villages, Vernazza is indeed a striking sight: snaking narrow lanes and a crescent-shaped harbor are framed by forested peaks and glittering Mediterranean waters. Visitors can stroll the scenic waterfront, snap photos of the charming pastel-colored buildings, and explore a medieval castle before heading down to the sandy beach for a refreshing swim in the sea.More

Cinque Terre National Park (Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre)

Cinque Terre National Park (Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre)

star-5364
Cinque Terre National Park (Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site full of postcard-worthy landscapes: sweeping sea cliffs dotted with sandy coves, brightly painted villages clinging to steep terraces, and forested plateaus blooming with wildflowers. Stretching some 4,300 acres (1,740 hectares) along northern Italy’s rugged Italian Riviera, the park dazzles visitors with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coastline.More
#3
Riomaggiore

Riomaggiore

star-00
Riomaggiore is photogenic from every angle, thanks to its jumble of multicolored buildings cocooned between dramatic sea cliffs and fronted by an expanse of blue ocean. The largest and southernmost of northern Italy’s five Cinque Terre villages, Riomaggiore is the place for romantic promenades, sipping coffee in traditional cafés, and bird watching along the rocky shores.More
