Italian Riviera

Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera. It's full of colorful villages tucked into the rugged coastline. In the last few centuries, tourism has transformed the sleepy towns into hives of activity and culture--but they still retain much of their original charm as historic fishing villages. Tour the ancient ruins and open-air street markets of Vernezza, or head to the rustic village of Riomaggiore, with its cascade of pastel buildings and cliffside paths leading to the local beach. Make Cinque Terre central to your Italy travel plans using our Italy trip planner .

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

It's hard to go wrong with accommodations in Cinque Terre, home to some of the most charming hotels and bed and breakfasts in the country. Choosing among them depends largely on what you want most from your trip. Consider spending a restful vacation on the hilltop to enjoy the famous ocean views, or plant yourself somewhere closer to the shoreline in Riomaggiore for easy access to beaches. If you expect to spend lots of time exploring side streets and local shops, opt for accommodations along one of the main streets in any of the villages. Though it can be difficult to find inexpensive lodgings here, there are some more affordable options in Manarola, the smallest of the five villages, and Monterosso. You can even stay at a hostel in the national park if you want to be close to nature.
