The Cinque Terre

It is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia, between Punta Mesco and Punta di Montenero, and it comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore (from west to east). Thanks to the geographical and anthropogenic charateristics of the territory, the Cinque Terre are one of the major tourist attractions of Liguria. This area is famous for its rugged and rough context, and for its agricultural terraces. The five villages are located in the point where the sea and the land meet, following the natural curve of the hills.
