Cinque Terre

a hidden pearl between Liguria and Tuscany.

Cinque Terre has many assets to entice the tourists. And yet you can not find it in the classic holiday brochures, with the exception of specific walking brochures. What then explains yet the appeal of this small coastal strip in the north of Italy?

We'll stick with a combination of sun and sea, charming villages, a national park in the hills, hiking trails, the harbors, boat trips on the sea, good food, local wine, anchovies, ...

If you want to see the real Cinque Terre, you will have to leave the beaten paths: walk into the small side streets of the villages, take the trails that go up into the hills, hike early in the morning or late in the evening, plan your visit outof season, book a place to stay in the center of one of the villages, get in touch with the local population (some words in italian can do wonders), ...

On this page, you will find a first introduction. The rest of our website will guide you on a virtual visit in Cinque Terre. Once you've decided to go there, our e-book is the best investment you can make in order to get the most out of your visit.
