Five small colored fishing villages carved out of the rocky hillsides above the Mediterranean Sea, these are The Cinque Terre. Connected only by paths, boats or trains these lands haven’t changed their traditional architecture and are as they were in past times.
They are far away from the traffic and the stress of the cities. Here Mediterranean trees and plants grow up spontaneously representing one of the best preserved natural areas of the Mediterranean, a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997.
In recent years, the Cinque Terre, which have some of the most breath-taking landscapes, have become so popular and appealing that for many tourists this destination is considered something to cross off a list, pretending to understand them in a 8 hour tour bouncing from a village to another.
But, the real Cinque Terre essence is just there, out of the crowds ways. You deserve to live the real Cinque Terre taking your time and avoiding the mass tourism. Yes, this is possible and since we know The Cinque Terre are not an “all inclusive paradise” tourist resort, we’d like to accompany you in an authentic experience through this area and its people, but also with a deeper look at the whole “Gulf of Poets” and the enchanting villages scattered around the bay such as Lerici, Tellaro, Montemarcello and more.
We are here for you. Explore and go deeper with us!
