Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre

31 October 2016

Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso: five villages suspended between the sea and the land.

The Cinque Terre, since 1997 protected by UNESCO as World Heritage and a National Park, are one of the most unspoilt natural Mediterranean areas in Liguria. “Heroic” viticulture (i.e. viticulture in very difficult conditions) has given rise to Sciacchetrà, a passito wine already known at the time of the Romans, and has created a landscape that is unique in the world with particular dry-stone walls, characteristic of hills sheer over the crystalline sea amid enchanting beaches and rocks. Famous all over the world, the Cinque Terre never cease to surprise one. To visit the Park without any worries, you can use the Cinque Terre Trekking Card and the Cinque Terre Train multi-services Card that offer combinations between train and bus and services like Wi-Fi and guided visits.
