Cinque Terre travel guide One day in Cinque Terre 4

Cinque Terre (Five Lands) is the five fishing villages lying by the coast of Mediterranean Sea in Italy with a rugged cliff and pebbly beach and the beautiful, colorful houses. This is a place to get away from all the touristy cliche places like Rome or Florence, to feel something simple and peaceful. Let’s discover the five fishing villages through our blog: How to spend a day in Cinque Terre — The paradise by the Mediterranean Sea.

This is the first among the five the train takes you to from La Spezia. This village has two areas to visit, the cliff to contemplate the sea or the old town with full of food. Riomaggiore is the unspoken capital of Cinque Terre.

The second village is humble but the scenery is overwhelming, with colorful houses being put over the tingling cliff. When I got here, it was stormy but the view is no less breathtaking.

Corniglia

This is the only village in Cinque Terre that doesn’t share the Mediterannean Sea, when the train stops at Corniglia Station, you have to climb at least 500 steps. This is a place suitable for trekking people and prefer an overview of Cinque Terre from above.

In 2011, a flood had the whole old fishing village tumbling back into the sea, but the people who love Vernazza and Cinque Terre had raised a fund to rebuild the village in 6 months. The restaurants on the cliff is remarkable to dine if you want to watch Vernazza from up high.

This is the biggest village in Cinque Terre including two areas, the modern and the old. The modern is where the train stops, the old town is where all the restaurants are and you can go further to the cliff to have a wonderful view of the Mediterranean Sea.

Rooms in Cinque Terre are rather pricey, the best option is to stay in nearby city like La Spezia. Or if you don’t want to stay the night, Florence is a more vibrant city from which you can travel to Cinque Terre and back within a day.
