Cinque Terre is one the most scenic places in Italy and on many travelers' bucket lists of places to visit in Italy

The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most scenic places in Italy.  The five towns are connected by footpaths, train or boat and you can travel between them in only a few minutes by train. 

There is over 120 km of trails along the Cinque Terre coast line with 48 hiking trails available.

No entrance fee is required for the Cinque Terre National Park. You will only need a special ticket, a Cinque Terre Card, for the two most famous trails: from Monterosso to Vernazza and from Vernazza to Corniglia. All other trails are free. From November until Easter all the hiking trails are free of charge. The Sentiero Azzurro cliffside hiking trail links the villages and offers sweeping sea vistas. 

Monterosso

Is the biggest of the five towns and has the most amenities. In the old town you will find seafood restaurants and nice shops. Monterosso has the only long and sandy beach in the area where you can rent chairs and umbrellas or a kajak to explore the many caves around the coast.

Vernazza  

One of the five picturesques towns that make up the Cinque Terre. It is named as one of the most beautiful towns of Italy

Corniglia

Located in the middle of the five towns. It is built on a cliff 100 metres above sea level.

Manarola  

In Manarola starts the famous path Via dell’Amore (Lover’s Lane) which is a very scenic path that leads you to Riomaggiore in only 20 minutes.

Riomaggiore

Is considered to be one of the most peaceful and quiet villages of the Cinque Terre.
