Transfer from & to Cinque Terre
We arrange both daily excursions from Rome and the major italian cities and transfers from the main italian airports and ports (Civitavecchia, Napoli, Livorno).
You will discover a territory in which sea and land are founded forming a unique and evocative area. 18 kilometres of rocky coastline abounding with abundant bays, beaches and deep sea, surrounded by mountains running parallel to the coast. Terracings cultivated with vineyards and olives, kept under control by old dry stone walls. A naturalistic heritage of great variety. Paths and mule tracks look onto breathtaking views. In synthesy, the “Cinque Terre” has been declared a World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO since 1997. More info…
Monterosso al Mare is the largest village of the Cinque terre and also the first to be documented (1056).Consisting of two districs, the old village and Fegina, the more touristy part, Monterosso al Mare also boasts important monuments.
Vernazza, considered by many to be the most charming of the Cinque Terre was documented for the firs time in 1080. The remarkable economic and social level reached by the village in Medieval times and still today testified by the town planning conformation.
Corniglia, the only village of the Cinque Terre not in contact with the sea,rising on top of a rock promontory.Its low and wide houses are more similar to those of the hinterland than to the typical coastal houses,evidence that the traditional vocation of the village has always been more inclined towards the land than the sea.
Manarola is a town planning jewel, rich as it is in typical tower houses of Genovese style. Founded during the XII century, the village probably derives its name from an antique “magna roea”, a large mill wheel present in the village.
We have the first news of Riomaggiore only in 1251, when the inhabitants of the district of Carpena, spread coast, swore faith to the Republic of Genova. Between 1200 and 1300 the inhabitants of these settlements decided to go down towards the sea and give life to the village.
