Cinque Terre day trip

Cinque Terre day trip

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre day trip is no doubt a high-up in the to-do list while in Milan for some days. Connected by pedestrian paths, boats or local train, but not by cars, this five fishing villages that go under the name of Cinque Terre are a UNESCO World heritage site since 1997. Four of them, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia and Vernazza are literally nestled in the steep cliffs overlooking the sea from above, while Monterosso al Mare, fifth and westernmost of the villages, is the bigger one and a natural gulf by the seaside.

How to get to Cinque Terre

There is no doubt, Cinque Terre is best reached by train, but we can provide a car, and then, once in Liguria, make sure you hop on a local train. Each of the five villages has its own small train station, and trains are frequent.

Enjoy the view on a boat trip

After a car ride and the hop-on/hop-off train ride, a boat trip is the one thing we recommend. It is arguably the best way to enjoy the coloured fisherman houses hanging on the terraced cliffs and the vineyards above.

Our suggestion… a stop at Portovenere

Also part of the UNESCO heritage, Portovenere is often called ‘the sixth of the Cinque Terre’ . What should we say… it’s mesmerizing! At least just to stroll along the cosy harbour and walk to the promontory topped by the church of San Pietro…
