Cinque Terre Short Break

The best way to discover the Cinque Terre is on foot. Five fishing villages on the steep coastline of the Ligurian Riviera make up the Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk along ancient walking trails clinging to the steep cliffs, marvel at the terraced vineyards and savour the tranquillity of the pine and chestnut forests of the Cinque Terre National Park. 

Known as Italy’s “Flower Riviera” the Ligurian Riviera is a delight for all the senses. Waves crash below coastal footpaths, wild flowers and vineyards surround you and the smell of fresh coffee tempts you into local cafes. The five fishing villages of the Cinque Terre have remained almost untouched by modern developments and are an idyllic walking escape. Based in Monterosso and Portovenere you can explore the coast by foot, boat or train and choose from a selection of coastal and mountain walks each day.
