Want to find a nice spot in Cinque Terre? You can go anywhere you want, you can’t go wrong.
Cinque Terre, literally “the Five Lands”, include the five cities Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
We stayed in Manarola and visited Riomaggiore. And loved them both!
In Riomaggiore, try to get lost in its narrow streets. Coming from the Piazza Vignaiolo, walk up the small stairs between the houses. Stretch your arms out and touch the walls on the left and on the right at the same time. There are many narrow streets like this, that’s why the cities of Cinque Terre are hardly accessible by car. Take the train or even the boat to arrive there in style.
Once there, enjoy the peaceful cities without motorised traffic. Go for a walk and discover the famous colourful houses that are built on the hillside. The view is just fantastic! While looking at the houses on the hillside, also notice the vineyards! Take a walk there and seize the opportunity to have a glass of wine. You will taste the sun and the beauty of this place.
