If you want to take the best day trip of your life in Italy, Cinque Terre is the place for you! Manarola, Riomaggiore, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, and Corniglia are the five villages that are considered Cinque Terre. I was only able to make it to three of the five villages when I took my own adventure there, but it was well worth it. The views you will see in Cinque Terre are unlike any other views I have ever seen.
What should you do in the Cinque Terre?
- Take an awesome Instagram picture in front of the stacked houses and gorgeous clear waters of Manarola
- Get pesto focaccia and fresh seafood at ANY of the restaurants in Vernazza
- MUST do the awesome hiking trail between Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare (It is pretty painful, but very necessary!)
- Take an afternoon trip to Portofino and shop at all of the fancy shops
