The Cinque Terre, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site in the Ligurian Coast
When we say Cinque Terre (Five Lands) we refer to five small villages scattered along the Ligurian Coast. This area is appreciated for the beauty of its environment. In fact, you find here very charming and colorful villages along the coast, surrounded by hundreds of terraces built by man with vineyards and olive treses. The view over the coastline is very suggestive. This coastal paradise was recognized by Unesco in 1997 and it includes also the village of Portovenere and three small islands off its coast. Additionally, this is also a protected marine area.
