Ever visited one of the UNESCO sea-sights? Well here’s your chance. The Five (Cinque) Villages of Liguria. Your eyes will be met by one of the most spectacular sights in Italy.
A paradise of crystal water and pastel harbors. Our visit begins at daybreak, with the arrival at RIOMAGGIORE: the village, dating back to the early thirteenth century, is famous for its historic character and local wine. You can admire the houses leaning one against the other and stroll along the narrow cobble alleyways and sheltered paths. We then reach MANAROLA by walking along the famous “Via dell’Amore” (The Path of Love) a romantic and evocative promenade hewn from the rocks falling sheer into the sea. The tiny harbor has a boat ramp and picturesque buildings clinging to the ravine. Our journey continues to MONTEROSSO, an ancient fishing village considered “The Pearl of the Cinque Terre”, where you will be awed by its enchanting beaches and the lush vegetation encircling the little town. Here you will have free time to plunge into the crystal sea and sunbathe, before taking the boat to VERNAZZA, a seaside town surrounding a small natural port. As well as comfortable clothes and shoes, we recommend you bring your swimwear!* At the moment the “Path of Love” is closed and the reopening depends on local authorities. If it is still not accessible during the high season then a longer route by boat will be offered as financial compensation. Please note that due to bad weather it may not be possible to use the boat. The given order of the visits may change.
