Cinque Terre, world heritage site
1997 the Cinque Terre were declared world heritage site. If you visit this area you will for sure understand why.
Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso are the 5 villages overlooking the sea from a steep coast; in the past the inhabitants worked hard to build dry-stone walls in order to turn an inaccessible territory into an astonishing and beautiful landscape, where they tenaciously cultivate some varieties of vineyards in order to produce renowned wines.
If you walk on the paths overlooking the sea you will discover the heart of this area: 5 coastal villages devoted to agriculture in the past and nowadays mainly to tourism; you can easily move to one village to the other by train, visit them, discover unknown beaches, cliffs and picturesque inlets and admire beautiful landscapes.
