The Cinque Terre, an extraordinary scenario of colorful houses surrounded by nature, overlooking the blue sea of the Ligurian coast.
Day trip to the Cinque Terre
In 1997, UNESCO added the Cinque Terre to the World Heritage List as a “cultural landscape” of exceptional value. The motivation? the harmonious interaction established between man and nature that responds to the required integrity and authenticity criteria.
Many writers and poets, such as Lord Byron and Pierce Shelley, spent their lives in these villages fascinated by the unique landscape that distinguishes them.
“Rocky and austere landscape, asylum for fishermen and peasants living whip to whip on a strip of beach that in some places is increasingly thinning, bare and solemn setting of one of the most primitive in Italy. Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, nests of hawks and gulls, Manarola and Riomaggiore are, proceeding from west to east, the names of a few villages or hamlets of villages so barricaded between the cliffs and the sea. ”
Eugenio Montale, Out of the house
The Cinque Terre are not just sea and beaches. You can appreciate the landscape by following the various panoramic paths that wind through terraced vineyards and discover medieval villages and ancient sanctuaries.
For those who stay in Versilia, these seaside villages become an excursion that can be easily reached both by sea and by land.
