Cinque Terre

There’s something magical about Cinque Terre. The beguiling city has been drawing travellers to its five seaside villages for almost two millennia. Each town has a distinct personality, but all feature terrace homes clinging precariously to cliffs, and fishing boats bobbing in the ocean in search of delectable fresh seafood to be served in the local trattorias. Settle in at a cafe with a shot of aromatic coffee and look up at the buildings slathered in pastel paint. No longer a secret, Cinque Terre is well and truly on the map, but despite the popularity of this ancient city, the promise of stunning architecture, incredible views and delectable cuisine never grows old.
