Italian Riviera

Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera. It's full of colorful villages tucked into the rugged coastline. In the last few centuries, tourism has transformed the sleepy towns into hives of activity and culture--but they still retain much of their original charm as historic fishing villages. Tour the ancient ruins and open-air street markets of Vernezza, or head to the rustic village of Riomaggiore, with its cascade of pastel buildings and cliffside paths leading to the local beach. Cinque Terre is in Italian Riviera. With our international travel planner, Italy vacations can be built around trips to Cinque Terre and other destinations in Italy.

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

Each of the five villages offer plenty of options--typically guesthouses or bed and breakfasts housed in brightly colored houses offering views over the water. If you want to explore Cinque Terre over several days, spend the first night in Riomaggiore--the most accessible of the five villages--then stay in Corniglia or Vernazza on your second night. That way, you can explore Manarola and Monterosso on day trips. You'll struggle to find budget accommodations in Cinque Terre, so expect to pay a premium and plan ahead.
