Have the chance to discover “a paradise on Earth”, that has been cherished by famous writers and poets throughout history- Cinque Terre. These ancient villages are known as the best nature preserved areas in all of the Mediterranean, and they have been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997.
First stop of the villages is Riomaggiore to discover the castle built in 1260 to strengthen the villages’ defense and San Giovanni Battista Church. Following the coast up to one of the smallest towns, Manarola (known for their fishing and wine making) to admire the gorgeous vineyards above the town. Next stop is Corniglia, the town perched on the cliff to admire the gorgeous views from above. Then continue onto Vernazza, the gem of Cinque Terre. Dating back to 1080, Vernazza is known for the beauty that surrounds this historical village. It is one of the truest fishing villages that remains and is one of the few no car traffic towns in Italy. You will have the luxury of admiring this gorgeous town while on a romantic walk to discover the Capuchin Cloister. Lastly you will arrive in Monterosso- the largest of the villages in Cinque Terre, known for its sandy beaches, ancient castle, and giant sculpture of Neptune. Visiting these historical villages is truly an unforgettable experience!
