Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera.
Change things up with a short trip to Portovenere in Porto Venere (about 1h 05 min away). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Parco Nazionale Cinque Terre. There's still lots to do: hike along Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza, get into the urban bustle at Vernazza, do a tasting at Terra di Bargon, and pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church.

For photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cinque Terre day trip planner .

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Cinque Terre is an approximately 19.5-hour combination of flight and train. The time zone difference moving from Brasilia Time to Central European Time is 4 hours. Traveling from Rio de Janeiro in March, expect Cinque Terre to be colder, temps between 18°C and 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) to allow enough time to take a train to Genoa.
