Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, the five towns clinging to the precipitous coast of the Ligurian coast, the Cinque Terre, which, since 1997, have been listed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site with the following description:
The eastern Ligurian Riviera of the Cinque Terre is a cultural site of outstanding value, representing the harmonious interaction between people and nature to produce a landscape of exceptional scenic quality that illustrates a traditional way of life that has existed for a thousand years and continues to play an important socio-economic role in the life of the community.
Over the course of centuries the whole area has maintained its original character thanks to its steep, rocky coasts, softened by the terracing that man has built over time, dedicated to olive trees and vineyards. The five towns are connected by a train with a famous itinerary, the Sentiero Azzurro (Azure Path), providing spectacular panoramas. Traveling this route you will enjoy the aromas of the Mediterranean and the healthy air that rises from the sea and into the Mediterranean scrub. Shaded olive groves along the tops of the cliffs and pebble beaches dot the full length of the journey, which can take some hours to travel for those who want to do it quickly, or a day-long excursion for those who want to take it more slowly. Walking under the overhanging cliffs, among olive groves and vineyards, admiring wonderful locations adorned with semitropical aloe is an experience worth living. Resting and refreshing oneself in a typical Ligurian trattoria, tasting the simple local cuisine featuring ingredients from land and sea, and full enjoying Sciaccetrà, the straw wine produced in the Cinque Terre using grapes grown on the cliff terraces that hang over the sea. It is an exceptional view, even from the seas on board your superyacht, rich with coves where you can drop anchor and dive into crystal waters with a rocky bottom.
