"The Harbor" Vernazza Things to Do Tip by lamentforicarus

Vernazza Things to Do: 76 reviews and 225 photos


Vernazza's small harbor is where most of the action is. Visit the small shops selling mother of pearl jewelry and colorful scarves. Look around for a quiet spot to eat gelato and people watch. Sunbathers flock here to find the perfect sunning rock, children scamper with soccer balls, and swimmers dive into the warm blue sea. This is the perfect place to find your own piece of "la dolce vita," with a slice of pizza or a bottle of wine, watch the fishermens' boats bob in the calm waters, watching the sun set over the hills.
