What to Do in Cinque Terre, Italy
Cinque Terre has been on my bucket list for a long time. The name literally translates to ‘Five Lands,’ and this portion of the Italian Riviera is made up of five towns: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Read on for my hotel, food, and activity recommendations.
Where to Stay:
What to Do: Hiking
What to Do: Explore the Town:
The sidewalks and alleyways are full of twists and turns, so getting around can be an adventure! One of my favorite things to do was just walk around and explore the town. And don’t worry, as long as you know the general direction you’re going, you’ll be okay.
Where to Eat:
It’s fairly impossible to have a bad meal in Italy, but one of my favorite restaurants was Trattoria da Billy. We first went in because of the name, but the food was delicious. Like most buildings in Manarola, the restaurant is built into the side of a cliff, so it is a little cramped, but that is part of the fun! The restaurant had delicious food and a beautiful outdoor eating area.
Cinque Terre is located in the region of Liguria, where pesto originated. Definitely try some while you’re there! There are also lots of good seafood options.
