The Cinque Terre is a magical stretch of coastline encompassing five fishing villages built on cliffs with pastel-colored buildings, grapevines and olive groves, and charming piazzas. Life centers around the Mediterranean sea with heart-stopping views and fabulous fresh seafood as the ultimate rewards.
The vast Cinque Terre National Park surrounds the stretch of coastline from Riomaggiore to Monterosso and the inland terraced gardens. This stretch of coastline is a UNESCO world heritage site, because it represents “the harmonious interaction between people and nature to produce a landscape of exceptional scenic quality.” It is truly a sight to behold.
