For centuries, the five villages of Cinque Terre, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso, could only be reached on foot or via the sea. You can now travel there conveniently by train. 

The hiking trails, which are still only partially accessible today, lead through varied unspoilt countryside and offer breathtaking views of the Ligurian Sea.
