The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) region of Italy is located on the Ligurian Coast, an hour or so from Pisa.

I haven't yet visited the whole of Italy, but from what I've seen so far, my favourite place is the Cinque Terre.

Ok, the Amalfi Coast is beautiful, but the Cinque Terre is captivating.

There are 5 picturesque villages perched on the cliffs and you can walk between them, amazing at the beauty that this region has to offer.

It is magic here - but don't tell everyone!


My favourite village is Vernazza. It has a beautiful harbour that is the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset, whilst sampling some of the local wine. We have stayed in Vernazza 3 times, and can't wait to go back again!

The other villages of the Cinque Terre are:

Riomaggiore

Manarola

Corniglia

Monterosso al Mare

Molto Bene!
