Cinque Terre

#92 - Genoa, Italy
Visited Here?
Do You Dream?
You get to fall in love with Italy five times.
And you can do it while hiking on the Via dell'Amore. This 25 minute walk is all you need to appreciate the beauty of this area. The walk connects two of the five cities, Riomaggiore to Monterosso, but you can get to the other three (Corniglia, Manarola and Vernzazza) by train. The rocky beaches and bountiful olive trees make these towns an example of Mediterranean life and diet, all high on our list of AbsoluteVisits.

Quick Facts & History

  • The Cinque Terre takes up a portion of the coast on the Italian Riviera, separated into five different villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
  • A big draw for tourists to this area besides its beautiful scenery is the fact that the villages are fairly isolated; cars cannot approach the villages from the outside.
  • The main way to travel from village to village is walking paths, such as the Via dell Amore (Lovers Path) towards Riomaggiore.
