cinque terre, italy

PLACE: Cinque Terre
LOCATION: Italy
NOTORIOUS: five oceanside towns in the Italian Riviera (“fiat-free Italy”)
NEAREST AIRPORT: MXP, Milano Malpensa airport (then take the train)
COORDINATES: 44.1000° N, 9.7500° E
CURRENCY: Euro

So I’ve now heard about this place more than twice which means I absolutely need to feature it. Five towns all in a row: Riomaggiore (the colourful and most substantial town), Manarola (tiny town with amazing pesto), Corniglia (small and not directly on the water), Monterosso (only resort town, has a decent night life, and a big beach) and Vernazza (the jewel of Cinque Terre — featured last in my pictures!).

Not only should we eat (olive oil!) and drink (dry white wine!)… it’s apparently essential that we check out the the trail from Vernazza to Monterosso. Apparently it’s a steep climb but taking the day to do it is well worth the effort. I’m headed to Italy this year – I hope it will be a pit stop!

  1. Beautiful photos and a lovely post! Cinque Terre truly captured my heart 14 years ago during my travels around the Tuscan region. Simply breathtaking! Will definitely need to go back.😊

  2. Visited here in June! Was amazing, stayed in Monterosso. Hiked between Monterosso and Vernassa. Not any easy hike but so worth the adventure!

  3. Thank you for bringing me back to the most amazing place on earth…. i had the privilege of visiting for my honeymoon 1998. It is still vivid in my mind. This just put the biggest smile on my face. Thank you
