The Cinque Terre (9 Hrs)

We will drive to Cinque Terre (The Five Lands), 5 mediaeval fisherman villages, all disposed along a 5-7 miles piece of coastline, which developed isolated through the ages as they could only be reached by sea, and feature an intact architecture and unbelievable landscapes.

We will reach Riomaggiore (first town), we'll visit it and walk along the famous "Via dell'Amore" (Walkway of Love) a romantic and easy path, carved along the cliffs and we’ll reach Manarola (second town). Last stop in Vernazza,(fourth town) considered the most picturesque of the five. Lunch is at leisure.

The route will be a fantastic moment because the road is one of the most breathtaking and scenic in Italy. Coasting the mountains and cutting through the terraces, this will give you unforgettable memories.

The tour consists also of the "Via dell'Amore" (Walkway of Love) and transportation with train or boat from Manarola to Vernazza (the ticket is not included in the price).

History

Here there were found remains from pre-Roman age, but the current appearance is the result of thousands of years of rocks' pressure and erosive action of water that today give to the Cinque Terre characteristics unique in the world, while they still conserve an uncontaminated and wild nature.

 

  • Monterosso : is the town that has the most beautiful and extended beaches with cliffs overlooking the sea; its center is divided in the ancient medieval part, which still retains some of its numerous towers, and in the most modern and residential part.

 

  • Vernazza : located on the slopes of a spur, perhaps this town takes name from the ancient Roman family "Gens Vulnetia" and it grows along the creek Vernazzola; is characterized by loggias, arcades, tower-houses and the Castle of the Doria family.

 

  • Corniglia : the name comes from the Roman family "Gens Cornelia" and it's the only town that doesn't directly face the sea but is surrounded by vineyards and terraces; to reach Corniglia it's necessary to climb a stairway called "Lardarina" formed by 33 ramps with more than 370 steps.

 

  • Manarola : takes its name from the latin "Manum arula" (that means "temple dedicated to the Manes") and also this town is characterized by beautiful rocks and spurs; from here it begins the famous Via dell'Amore (Path of Love), a panoramic path, romantic and charming, carved into the cliff and adorned by the sound of the sea.

 

  • Riomaggiore : takes it name from the ancient river Rivus Major, and his homes, characterized by the typical Ligurian colors, follow the pattern of the tower-houses built vertically on three or four floors.
