Hello, Hello! Time for a new blog post. This time I will show you the colorful Cinque Terre. The Cinque Terre (Five lands) is a string of five fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera (region Liguria): Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. I hope that by reading this post I will inspire you to visit this amazing area. The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces to cultivate grapes and olives on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the Mediterranean Sea. The breathtaking views of harbours far below the wild but hospitable coastline along with the medieval fortresses and plentiful vines and vibrant colours make this a memorable holiday. The Cinque Terre, recognized in 1997 by the Unesco Mankind’s World Heritage, are today a National Park and Protected Marine Area with the aim of protecting this great cultural heritage and natural environment. To visit Cinque Terre, you take the train from La Spezia. The Cinque Terre Express train, which goes back and forth between La Spezia and Levanto, has departures every 30 minutes. From La Spezia to Riomaggiore is 10 minutes. And between the actual Cinque Terre towns, it’s less than 5 minutes. If you are planning to take the train several times a day, it’s better to purchase the Cinque Terre Train Card.
