In northwestern Italy, there resides the region of Liguria, with its famously known city of Genoa. Also hosted in this region is the area of the Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre, or five lands, was named for the five quaint villages, which have been intricately carved into the cliff-sided hills that rise boldly from the coastal seas below. Italy’s Cinque Terre holds an artistic enticement due to the breathtaking beauty of hills and rugged cliffs overhanging the glistening aqua seas below. Living amongst this spectacular panoramic view, five villages have been designed and orchestrated within the natural landscape cradle. Tourists, to Italy, will be intrigued by the houses, paths of navigation, and scenery making up this natural beauty, which uniqueness has been kept intact by adherence to nautical and agricultural traditions. The chain of villages consists of Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Rio Maggiore.
