Five impossibly beautiful villages linked by footpaths above the azure Mediterranean Sea, makes the Cinque Terre a heavenly place for walkers. Follow the well-marked trails from one colourful village to the next through lemon and olive groves. The villages themselves, such as Vernazza and Riomaggiore, are everything you would expect; small squares lined with restaurants serving delicious fresh seafood, brightly painted houses, quaint harbours and typical Italian café culture. Sip on your espresso whilst gazing out to the glittering emerald waters.
This region in the northeast of Italy, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and walking is the best way to discover all the highlights. Perhaps you would like the Walking Portofino and Cinque Terre itinerary because it takes you to Portofino, a glamorous resort and harbour, as well as Portovenere, a picturesque medieval town. As you sip on a glass of sciacchetrà, a dessert wine produced in this area, your mind will be full of memories about today's glorious and rewarding coastal walk. If you have a shorter amount of time available, why not try the Cinque Terre Short Break which focuses on the five main villages. All linked by train, this is also a great way to get around during your stay as we include a train pass.
Another great experience is being welcomed at locally-owned and charming accommodations. The sea views are to die for and make sure to enjoy breakfast on a outside terrace should you be blessed with good weather.
