Connected by balcony paths on the Mediterranean, the Cinque Terre, which includes the 5 villages of Monterosso, Riomaggiore, Bonassola, Vernazza and Corniglia, are now a World Heritage Site. Between the sea and the mountains, between typical colourful villages and terraces of vineyards and olive trees, this little corner of Italy has preserved all its authenticity and the hikes of this part of the Ligurian coast will give us time to prefer contemplation to competition. The last day, the return by boat, along the coast, will allow us to admire all the beauties of the coast, a true fairy-tale of colours! It is on the terrace of a trattoria, facing the sun gliding in the Mediterranean, that you will take the time to taste foccaccia and white wine, after a beautiful day of walking and discoveries. The frequency of the trains allows an easy and non-polluting movement; in the evening, you will find the serenity and the charm of the village of Moneglia by the sea.
