Vernazza, Vernazza

4.0
An integral piece of the Cinque Terre region, Vernazza is perhaps the most preserved example of a true Italian fishing village. Admire Mediterranean and harbor views from the city's 15th-century hilltop castle. Wander the town's cobbled streets, lined with stone churches, pastel-colored homes, and ornate buildings. You can only get around town on foot, so wear comfortable walking shoes. The climb to the summit may be difficult for people with mobility issues. Put Vernazza and other Cinque Terre attractions into our Cinque Terre visit planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • After visiting the small village malarola, also on the train, arrived in Vernazza. More malarola were slightly larger fishing villages, tourist shops. Cobblestone alleys often retains the atmosphere of the middle ages. Also, small Bay down the slope with color colorful houses and the Church, is a cheerful town.

  • A bald guy with a gun was running around while bodyguards chased him. Very scary and especially dangerous for children.

  • Sainte-Marguerite Cathedral, located in the centre of the town of Weiernazha, is a Roman Catholic church. It was said that the church had been built since 11th century and rebuilt in 13th century, and that it had been continuously repaired after the resumption of the land. The church is located on the seaside square above, also has a 40 meters high octagonal bell tower, is Weiernazha's landmark building.
