Cinque Terre: the italian wonderland between water and hills

Located in Liguria (an italian region just above Tuscany and close to France), the Cinque Terre (=”five lands”) consists of five small towns (Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore) situated on small hills and just in front of the sea.

Cinque Terre: a hidden paradise

Cinque Terre Cinque Terre is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever been! And the best part: not many people know about it, so it is a great place to go and rest. Trust me, if you are traveling through Italy, this is a place you have to go!

Yandara Akamine

Cinque Terre - italian heaven uphill

I was being told about five small villages, spread on mountain hills somewhere, overlooking the sea. It almost sounded like a fairy tale land forgotten in time. In order to find my way there, I needed names – speaking to some Italians I easily reached my goal – Cinque Terre ( The Five Lands in translation). Apparently, it is a very famous tourist destination, which kind of killed my enthusiasm. Tourists tend to ruin that special atmosphere, like turning magic into a simple trick, performed on the street for money. Fake! Reconstructions, English translation, directions, overpriced restaurants, souvenir shops around every corner and overcrowded loudness! Noise intercepting the vintage music, leaving behind just the echo of beauty…

How to enjoy Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre is a National Park, only 130 km from Genova, Italy; and it is amazing.

AdelaidaDeV

An Unforgettable Detour to Genoa

“Where is Genoa? Why are you there?”, my mom on the phone asked as I was arranging my stuff to get off the train. I was actually on my way to spend a week in Cinque Terre with my best friend and only had to change trains in Genoa but my ever-curious and insatiable wanderlust dragged me to do more than just stop over. From that moment when the announcement was made that we have reached Stazione Genova Piazza Principe, I was still fixed on sleeping in that B&B that we booked in Cinque Terre later that night. But as we got off the station, I looked around and joked, “What if we stayed here for a night, just for the heck of it?” I did try to resist the idea but the crazier the idea got, the more we got excited and went our way! We ended up exploring the city from the very night of our arrival, and it was such a treat to see Genoa both under moonlight and daylight as both had different aspects of beauty to it.

Giselle Cruz

Trekking the Cliffs of Cinque Terre (Italy)

Cinque Terre means ‘Five Lands’ and is a National Park, covering five small and charming villages on Italian North coastline (often referred to as Italian Riviera), Liguria region. One can find a bunch of other picturesque villages and small towns close to the region (Portofino, La Spezia, Levanto, etc.) worth a visit, however my target was Cinque Terre villages themselves (well, I did spent several hours in La Spezia, as it took me just three minutes by train from Cinque Terre village Riomaggiore).

Mari Kava

Chilling Out in Cinque Terre

Less expensive than Capri, less high-profile than the Amalfi Coast, the Cinque Terre is my absolute favourite Italian coastal getaway.
