Our trip to the Cinque Terre is an unforgettable whole day devoted to the discovery of one of the most amazing and enchanting landscapes in the world. The Five (Cinque) villages, which hang between the sea and the land, are a place where you can immerse yourselves in paradise, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Our visit begins at daybreak, with the arrival at La Spezia, where we will take a train to Riomaggiore. The village, dating back to the early thirteenth century, is famous for its historic character and local wine. You can admire the houses leaning one against the other and stroll along the narrow cobble alleyways and sheltered paths. We then reach Manarola a romantic town. The tiny harbor has a boat ramp and picturesque buildings clinging to the ravine. Our journey continues to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered The Pearl of the Cinque Terre, where you will be awed by its enchanting beaches and the lush vegetation encircling the little town. Here you will have free time to plunge into the crystal sea and sunbathe, before taking the boat to Vernazza, a seaside town surrounding a small natural port.
