Riomaggiore, Italy

Hike through Cinque Terre

Originally added by Allie Rippe

Cinque Terre is made up of five small beach towns that you can hike between. Make sure to stop for some gelato in one of the towns!

Train into La Spezia to start the day. Then hike, train, or boat between all five towns! The five towns are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Corniglia is the only village not on the coast, but is a beautiful hilltop village famous for their fine wines. They even have small hotels for rent if you are planning to stay a few nights. At most towns you can jump in the water and go for a swim.
