Cinque Terre Day Trip From Milan
Cinque Terre (meaning Five lands) are five lovely old fishing villages (Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore) dating back to the early medieval period.
They are suspended on steep cliffs overlooking the Ligurian Sea, in a National Park spread along 18 kilometers of rocky coast made up of caves, beaches, and paths with breathtaking landscapes, where cars were banned over a decade ago.
Cinque Terre have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. You will visit Portovenere, enjoy a boat trip to Monterosso, transfer by train to the charming Manarola, and take a gentle stroll to Riomaggiore along the Via dell’Amore.

After the visit, you will transfer by train to Manarola, a tiny urban jewel full of typical Genovese-style ‘case-torri’, for a gentle stroll along the famous path Via dell’Amore (Lovers Lane) to Riomaggiore. This is a scenic coastal path overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
