How is it possible to spend one day in Cinque Terre you ask? In this guide, we’ll show you how!
Start your morning by wandering through the charming streets of Monterosso’s Old Town. Admire the colorful buildings, browse the local shops, and soak up the atmosphere of this picturesque village.
There is a beautiful 7.5 mile coastal trail, aptly named The Blue Trail (Sentiero Azzurro), which connects all five towns of Cinque Terre. Arguably the most beautiful portion of the trail is from Monterosso to Vernazza, which offers stunning vistas of the Mediterranean Ocean.
We found this to be the most picturesque of the villages on the water. Its harbor is a bit wider and more spacious. So walk around it and enjoy the stunning views of the harbor. Watch the fishing boats bobbing in the water and take in the picturesque scenery.
I loved seeing the five towns from the perspective of the sea, especially when we turned around at Monterosso and could see all five towns in one panoramic view.
The combination of its colorful buildings, dramatic cliffs, and the sparkling Ligurian Sea creates a picturesque backdrop for a memorable sunset.
