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.
