Monterosso Al Mare
Our first stop in Cinque Terre is Monterosso. It is the biggest village of Cinque Terre. You can easily swim if you want because it is not as rocky as other villages. There is a long and beautiful beach to swim in. If you don’t want to stay in a hotel, you can rent a house from the locals. Ristorante Miky and Ristorante Belvedere are one of the most popular places you can eat delicious and local foods.
Vernazza is another cheerful village in Cinque Terre. If you enjoy mountain walk you can walk to Vernazza. It is 3.5 km from Monterosso. The narrow streets and colorful houses of Vernazza are a visual feast. You should visit Santa Margherita Church in Vernazza Square. Then climb the stairs to arrive at the Castello Doria Castle and watch the wonderful view. It is a great place to take beautiful photos. You are going to see lots of colorful houses every stop in Cinque Terre. Don’t forget to taste the delicious wines of La Cantina Del Molo.
Corniglia is different from other villages in Cinque Terre. It is away from the beach. You should arrive by train, then you can go to the center of the village by bus or you can climb 380 steps. Finally, you can sit on the stairs to relax by eating scrumptious Italian deserts and drinking coffee. You will see the sea through the narrow streets. Corniglia is the most tranquil village of the Cinque Terre.
Manarola is the favorite village of the visitors of Cinque Terre. You will watch the most pleasant sunset in Manarola. The view of the colorful houses that built on the rocks is a fantastic view. The most significant building of Manarola is Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church. If you want to add some excitement to your Cinque Terre journey, you can join people who jumped from the cliff to the sea. We recommend you to stay in this romantic village for at least one night.
We are finishing our Cinque Terre journey with Riomaggiore. The village is famous for fried seafood and wine, you should definitely try. There are also historical buildings in Riomaggiore such as San Giovanni Battista Church and Oratory of St.Maria Assunta. You can also swim here but you have to jump from the cliff.
