Italian Riviera and Tuscany

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre is the most uncontaminated and fascinating natural part of Liguria and the Tyrrhenian coast. Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Monterosso and Vernazza are the villages suspended between sea and land that give life to Cinque Terre. Clinging with all their might on cliffs overlooking the sea, these villages are part of a National Park and have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
