In September 2019, some American customers asked me to drive them from Annecy to Cinque Terre with my taxi. The trip was lovely but quite long so I booked a room in Vernazza in order to get some sleep and enjoy Italian food before coming back home to Annecy. I really enjoyed those colored villages by the sea and the Italian dolce vita.
The Cinque Terre meaning “Five Lands” is a coastal area within Liguria, in the northwest of Italy. It lies in the west of La Spezia Province, and comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The breathtaking views of harbours far below the wild but hospitable coastline along with the medieval fortresses and plentiful vines and vibrant colours make this a memorable holiday.
It is very narrow and difficult to park there so the best way to discover the place is to get a train day ticket.
Also a cruise to Portovenere (lovely place too) can allow you to see the spot by boat.
