Agriculture and Landscape
A natural masterpiece of diverse wonders unfolds along the rugged coast—a canvas painted with rocky bays, sandy beaches, and the mysteries of the deep ocean. This enchanting panorama is dominated by a mountainous chain running parallel to the shore. Terraced vineyards, ancient olive trees, and meandering paths create a breathtaking spectacle.
Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, perched above the sea, are five time-honored fishing villages preserving the allure of their untouched landscapes. This extraordinary beauty is the result of generations turning a once-inaccessible territory into a captivating tapestry of land and sea. United as The Cinque Terre National Park, UNESCO recognized their charm in 1997, designating them a World Heritage Site.
While a train conveniently connects The Cinque Terre, the truest exploration unfolds along the paths hugging the cliffs, offering panoramic views of the Marine Protected Area. Embark on the renowned “blue trail” linking the five towns or stroll the iconic “Via dell’Amore” from Manarola to Riomaggiore—a celebrated pathway etched into the very essence of Italy’s famous trails.
