Cinque Terre are a world apart: set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, these five ingeniously constructed fishing villages can bolster the most jaded of spirits.
Discovering from a unique point of view the steeply terraced cliffs bisected by a complicated system of fields and gardens that have been hacked, chiselled, shaped and layered over the course of nearly two millennia.
Immerse yourself in the timeless appeal of these five fishing communities, walk around in the colorful village fo Monterosso, have a tasteful Mediterranean lunch in a typical restaurant.
With so many grapevines and olive trees on the hillsides around, wine and oil are a must on local tables. They prove excellent companions for the salted anchovies of Monterosso served in olive oil as well as the many specialty fish dishes, authentic gastronomic delights.
And don’t forget a final glass of ‘Sciacchetrà’, a prized dessert wine made from prime grapes dried to the point of holding only a few drops of sweet juice.
