28 Aug The Cinque Terre
The Cinque Terre National Park, a protected marine area, is an area where sea and land merge to form a unique and evocative. Eighteen miles of rocky coastline full of bays, beaches and deep, topped by a chain of mountains that run parallel to the shoreline. Terraced vineyards and olive trees, whose containment is assured by ancient stone walls.
A natural heritage of great variety. Walking paths and trails with breathtaking views. Five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, which overlook the sea. An environment in which the secular work of generations has transformed an inaccessible area in a landscape of extraordinary beauty. An Area Marine Protected Area and a National Park that protect the absolute uniqueness. These, in summary, the Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
