Discover the beautiful Cinque Terre! A Unesco World Heritage site, the Cinque Terre, meaning "five lands" (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso) are five perilously perched villages strung along a short stretch of cliffs that face the Liguria sea on one of Italy's most scenic stretches of coastline.
During this day trip you will take a boat-trip to admire the stunning views of the Cinque Terre from the sea. You will also visit the delightful villages of Manarola, Portovenere (pass by without stopping) and Monterosso. Here you will have time to explore and visit the beaches dotted along the coast.
Despite the number of tourists, there is still a real sense of local identity even in the most tourist-crammed little squares. Restaurants, bars and accommodation all have an endearingly homespun air about them as though when the locals saw tourists coming, they found a few garden chairs to stick on their terrace, hand painted a sign and began serving customers. Experience this suggestive atmosphere during this day trip from Milan!
