Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera.
Do some cultural sightseeing at San Pietro Church and Isola Palmaria. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church and Borgo Storico di Manarola. Change things up with these side-trips from Cinque Terre: Hike the Punta Manara (in Sestri Levante), Porto Venere (Santuario della Madonna Bianca (Chiesa di San Lorenzo), De Gustibus, & more) and Levanto to Monterosso Trail (in Levanto). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Convento dei Cappuccini e Chiesa di San Francesco, step into the grandiose world of Castello Doria, do a tasting at Terra di Bargon, and admire the striking features of Chiesa Di San Pietro.

To plan Cinque Terre vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
