The Cinque Terre Tour Experience
Though it may not be as well known as the French Riviera, the Italian Riviera also offers some of Europe’s most luxurious beaches and sun-splashed vacation spots. Our favorite stop along the Riviera is Cinque Terre, a string of five villages connected by beautiful trails and walking paths. Renowned as one of the most romantic places in Italy, this daylong tour will captivate lovers and friends alike with gorgeous views and an authentic glimpse into the culture of five small communities.
One of the main aspects of Cinque Terre that gives it such an incredible atmosphere is the lack of drivable roads and automobiles between its five villages. A majority of visitors come by sea, and the most travelled routes between the villages are walking paths. By foot you can look out over Cinque Terre’s steep cliffs at the Ligurian Sea and admire the terraced vineyards that provide grapes for the region’s two famous wines.
The villages of Cinque Terre are commonly pictured in advertisements, calendars, and other print materials to display the uncommon beauty of Italian life. As you stroll through the towns you’ll be charmed by the colorful houses, each one adding a different shade to the beautiful landscapes of Cinque Terre. Not only are the sights welcoming; Cinque Terre is a particularly popular tourist destination because of the friendly attitudes of local residents.
Local Foods and Wines
Throughout this daylong tour of Cinque Terre, your guide will introduce you to hidden gems for souvenirs and local delicacies. Make room in your suitcase for a bottle of Ligurian pesto sauce; some say it’s the finest in the world! You’ll also want to try fresh-baked focaccia bread, anchovies caught straight from the Mediterranean Sea, and Farinata, a pancake-like snack food served in many bakeries and pizzerias. Of course, Cinque Terre is also known for its two famous blends of wine: “Cinque Terre” and “Sciachetra.” We recommend trying both!
