Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) is a short piece of coastline just outside of the border of Tuscany at the beginning of the Italian Riviera where five mediaeval fisherman villages survived intact to the centuries. Unique architectures and unbelievable landscapes make this one of the most beautiful locations in Italy.
In Riomaggiore spectacular views and the famous "Via dell'Amore" a romantic, easy and flat trail carved along the cliffs on the sea, connecting to Manarola, another incredibly enchanting location. From here a local train or ferry lead you through the coast line and in only 10 min you will be in Vernazza.
On your return it will be possible to visit Corniglia the most ancient and the only town not facing directly on the water but just as charming. The last of the five villages of the Cinque terre is Monterosso al Mare, the most visited for its extended sandy beach and also for the interesting ruines of a medieval castle and the church of San Francesco, famous for a painting by Van Dyck, both located in the old part of the town.
