Cinque Terre Tours
The charm of jagged rocks, nature and colored towns above the sea...
In Northern Italy, just an hour by train from Genoa, the territory of Cinque Terre (‘Five Lands’) is an amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site that contains the beauty of the rough sea, the charm of the jagged rocks and the magic of little and colored towns almost set above the sea.
Its name comes from the five towns that extend along the coast: coming from Genoa, the first one is Monterosso al Mare, which is the most populous and the best located.You can’t miss its beautiful beaches, which are the only ones of sand in this area.
Then, it comes the lovely Vernazza, considered one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. In fact, this city is situated on a little cape that confers a very characteristic atmosphere, together with the shiny sea and the colored buildings. Moreover, you can taste here its typical Vernaccia wine (from which derives the name of the city).
From Vernazza, you can have a walk to another cape above which there is the city of Corniglia. It is the only one that doesn’t overlook the sea and is the smallest town of this area, but you can admire its wild nature and enjoy the visit of Saint Peter’s church, which combines the baroque and the unique Ligurian gothic style. Just twenty minutes by train from this city, Manarola waits for you to visit it: it develops on a narrow gorge sheer on the sea and its main characteristics are the typical and colored tower houses. In addition, you can arrive there walking on the Blue Path, which also crosses the other towns and is called ‘The Love Path’.
Finally, from Manarola you will arrive to the most famous village of the Cinque Terre: Riomaggiore. Its historical centre of colored tower houses above other gorge sheer on the sea gives to this city a suggestive setting that combines pristine nature and human life.Rome and Italy Group wants you to get the chance of visiting such an incredible place with a train itinerary, the most comfortable and convenient transport to admire the enchanted sceneries of this land.
In addition, our activities will entertain you during your unforgettable journey: in particular, with our cooking class you will discover all the secrets of the traditional Italian cuisine. In this region, you can’t miss to taste the famous pesto Genovese sauce, whose main ingredient is basil (other typical Ligurian product), and all the dishes made with stock fish, which is a representative ingredient of this region (despite is, nowadays, very rare). With the train, you have the possibility to try this in Genoa, main city of Liguria and a place rich of history and art. You can visit the popular ‘Lanterna’ (the lighthouse of Genoa’s harbor), De Ferrari Square (the central point of the city), the Ancient Port and, obviously, the Aquarium of Genoa, the biggest one in Italy and the third one in Europe.
