One of the most pristine areas in the Mediterranean, the Cinque Terre consists of five miles of rocky coastline nestled between two promontories. It is named for the five small neighboring towns – Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Manarola, Vernazza and Monterosso. The towns, terraced along the coastal cliffs, are all quite similar in appearance, with dry-laid stone walls, winding footpaths, hillsides dotted with vineyards, and perhaps most famously, breathtaking views of the sea. The towns couldn’t be more delightful or unspoiled, which earned Cinque Terre the distinction of being both a National Park and UNESCO protected territory.  One of the best ways to enjoy the towns is from the sea. Our scenic cruise also includes a stop in two of the five towns – Monterosso and Manarola.
