The Cinque Terre, or “Five Lands”, is a string of seaside villages on the
Italian Riviera coastline, in the Italian region of Liguria.
The five villages, in descending order, are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia,
Manarola and Riomaggiore. This area was named a Unesco World Heritage
site in 1977 and is becoming more popular each year.
Each village has its own charm and character. Monterosso is known for
its luxurious beach and Vernazza has the picturesque harbor. Local
wines are produced from vineyards that cling to the the terraces that
cascade down to the Sea.
The villages are connected by railway, ferry and the world-famous
hiking trails. To hike the trails, you must purchase a park-entrance
ticket, available in each village, which will include a map of the trails.
