Discover The 'Cinque Terre' region Italy

Between the steep relief and the sea, clinging to the cliffs or built around little bays, are the market towns that make up the Cinque Terre: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The best way of getting around is to follow the various footpaths that connect them. From the heights of the cliffs that drop into the sea or along the coastline, you can take in the beautiful natural scenery that surrounds you. The region has remained relatively well preserved thanks to its layout, which has very strict real estate regulations, and also to the fact that the area is protected and receives much attention.

    Vernazza is perhaps the most spectacular of the towns of the Cinque Terre; the photograph is of the parish church of Santa Margherita of Antiochia.

    "a rocky and austere landscape, a shelter for fishermen and peasants who live as best they can on a strip of beach..." This is how Eugenio Montale described these magical surroundings.

    Monterosso is home to the region's most famous beach. Covered with sand, deckchairs and parasols, it is an exception on the rugged coastline that characterises the Cinque Terre.

    Vernazza is a small jewel of art and culture: in addition to the church of Santa Margherita, the Castello dei Doria and the Torrione di Vernazza are also worth visiting.
