Cinque Terre can be easily reached from Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino.Cinque Terre are five small fishing villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. They are all nestled along a high and jagged coast, with panoramic glimpses and extraordinary colours.In 1997, the villages of Cinque Terre and Portovenere became a UNESCO World Heritage site. They combine to form an extraordinary National Park, visited every year by millions. These villages are a perfect destination for day-trips and romantic walks along paths like the Via dell’Amore from Riomaggiore to Manarola, or the Azzurro which is an ancient mule trail that still connects the five villages.The landscape is characterized by multicoloured houses built on the rocks overlooking the sea and by terraced gardens designated to the cultivation of grapevines. Not only are world-renowned red and white wines produced from these vineyards but also the distinguished raisin wine “Sciacchettra” is produced in this area.
