Vernazza Off The Beaten Path: 16 reviews and 35 photos
Small fishermen's villages in Mediterranean area are usually constructed in a shape of bunch of grapes, no matter if in Italy, Greece, Croatia or Spain. Such a villages are determined by the port, which must be well protected from the northern winds and sea water which has to be deep enough for a small ships. Fact is, not many such a bays could be find in the coastal area. It is why space at the shore is usually too small and pretty valuable forcing people to construct the houses one very close to another. Thats the reson why Vernazza has carruggi, short and very narrow streets.
