Ciao! Many thanks for your nice message! I’m happy you like my site 🙂
The Cinque Terre area is simply wonderful! Its small fishing villages on the coast are enchanting and offer breathtaking views over the sea. I also include the Cinque Terre as a destination on a tour across Italy!
There are 5 villages facing the coast that are actually known by the name of “Cinque Terre”: Manarola, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
I think the right time to stay there would be about 3 days or more if you like some beach life as well. Manarola is particularly beautiful and has a central location in the National park of the Cinque Terre.
Among the many things you can do there, I certainly recommend to walk along the area’s panoramic paths, they are stunning! Also take the time to stay on the beach and enjoy the crystal clear waters!
This is the official website dedicated to the Cinque Terre, where you can find many more detailed info.
Let me know if I can be of any further help,
