  • It's heaven on a sublime context, it's worth the climb some stairs to get to the convent of the Capuchin Friars. I recommend it to all those who love nature, the breathtaking views and the silence. A must-have for anyone who loves capturing photographs unique.

  • Small church overlooking Monterosso. Lots of stairs but the panorama is worth some effort. The Church is full of charm and the cemetery is also worth a visit. You will make great pictures of Monterosso to the Summit.

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.
