Cinque Terre is a territory in which sea and land are melting shaping a unique and evocative area.
18 kilometers of rocky coastline abounding with bays, beaches and deep sea, surrounded by mountains running parrellel to the coast.
Terracings cultivated with vineyards and olives, kept under control by old dry stone walls. A naturalistic heritage of great variety. Paths and mule tracks look onto breathtaking views. Five villages, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso face onto the sea.
An environment in which centuries old work of generations has transformed an inaccessable territory into a landscape of extraordinary beauty.
