Italy Liguria Terre

Cinque Terre

Five colorful seaside villages perched on rugged cliffs along the Italian Riviera, famed for vineyards, hiking trails, and coastal beauty.

Tips from the community

Ever received a postcard from Italy? There’s a high chance that the Cinque Terre is featured. These are quintessential mugshots of the Med, after all – think pastel-colored homes cascading from vineyard-clad cliffs to a boat-bobbing sea. The Cinque Terre itself is actually a whole area of Liguria. It’s linked together by stunning coastal walking paths on the Sentiero Azzurro route. Have the camera ready the whole way because the Technicolor villages of Riomaggiore and Corniglia are Instagram fodder extraordinaire!

Cinque Terre is the best preserved and natural areas along the Mediterranean Sea. Due to the preservation, there are no major highways and housing development laws are very strict. This makes it one of the most beautiful historic towns in Italy. The water is light blue and the few houses along the rocky shore are full of color. It is a beautiful place to stay and once again, enjoy your partner's company.

Cinque Terre is a string of ancient fishing villages that are linked along the Italian coastline, between the towns there is an incredibly rugged trail to explore and plentiful outdoorsy activities. Hike along cliffs, horseback ride through the countryside, enjoy an authentic fishing excursion and enjoy the rich, traditional culture of the villages.

The Cinque Terre is one of the prettiest parks in Italy. Five multi-coloured villages are located along the seacoast, united by a network of hiking trails.
