The famous Cinqueterre are five (cinque!) unique coastal villages in the region of Liguria. The coastline, the five villages and the surrounding hillsides are all within a national park of the same name, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On arrival at the 1st town, Riomaggiore, you will walk together the famous "Via Del Amore", or "Lovers Lane" which leads to the second town Manarola. This beautiful path is approximately 1km long, and will take no longer than 30 min to complete.
After some sightseeing and maybe gift shopping in Manarola , it will nearly be time for lunch ! to the 4th town Vernazza. The 3rd town Corniglia we shall visit later on the way back in the minivan.
In the characteristic town of Vernazza you can stop and have a wonderful lunch, you can taste the famous anchioves from the 5 terre or the tasty pesto sauce, along with the refreshing white wine (vino bianco delle 5 terre) just ask your driver and he will recommend the best place to eat .
On the way back we will stop briefly in the 3rd town of Corniglia, perhaps just enough time to enjoy a gelato and take a few photos of the breathtaking views!Please make sure to bring comfortable walking shoes or sneakers, and your swimming costume for a dip in the beautiful Ligurian sea!
