Cinque Terre is a stretch of territory over the riviera ligure of levante, which includes five villages, once called lands or ‘terre’ in Italian , all in the province of La Spezia:
Cinque Terre are characterized by a predominantly hilly and mountainous territory, which creates breathtakingly beautiful scenarios, with cliffs overlooking the sea and coasts of particular charm.
They are so charming due to the presence of many bays and small islands not far from the coasts, all particularly splendid.
Those who visit these wonderful lands are fortunate to find some sandy beaches, easily accessible, mainly located in the municipalities of Riomaggiore and Monterosso. These town have made seaside tourism one of their strengths, where the beaches and coasts are of unquestionable beauty.
Choosing the Cinque Terre, however, does not mean only dedicating yourself to the beaches. Numerous trails and parks are an integral part of the area, making it a must-see place for the more adventurers. This stretch of riviera also has some significance for those looking for culture, since each village is home to several churches, most of which are from the 14th century.
Loved by many poets, particularly mentioned by Montale, the Cinque Terre is a place capable of uniting the desires and pleasures of tourists from all over the world.Categories: Guides
