Cinque Terre

Comprising five centuries-old fishing villages precariously perched on rugged coastal cliffs, the Cinque Terre summons images of a pastel-toned paradise. The whole area boasts a UNESCO World Heritage-listing, and as you saunter along the cliff-side hiking trails that link the villages, it isn’t hard to see why. Marvel at the pantone hued buildings, watch boats bob in the harbours or soak up the atmosphere on a sun-drenched trattoria’s pavement. Foodies will be in their element – the region is famous for freshly caught seafood and Liguria’s signature sauce, pesto.
