Description

The five villages that make up Cinque Terre ("Five Lands") are perched on cliffs above the ocean. The jagged coastline has been tamed by terraced farms and colorful homes that seem stacked on each other like Legos. The towns are so precipitous that they do not support cars: to get from one to the other, you must trek along 1,000-year-old hiking paths (for a 5 euro charge) or hire a boat. The towns were virtually inaccessible except by water until the late 1800s, when the railway from Genoa to La Spezia was built (today, the easiest way to get to town). Cinque Terre's beauty earned it a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation, which in turn has attracted tourists from around the world. But despite this attention, the towns seem to still function the way they have for a thousand years; fishermen gossip on the docks as they bring in their anchovy hauls, and women lean out the windows to hang their laundry to dry. The northernmost town, Monterosso, is the most resort-filled and least traditional; hotels in the other villages are in higher demand, so be sure to make early reservations.
