The Cinque Terre Walk, Relax, Cook, and Eat
Cinque Terre is not a Disney Theme Park; its unique environment results from thousands of human civilizations surviving and adapting to challenging conditions.
You can take a boat tour, visit the five towns in three hours, and rightfully claim that you have been to the Cinque Terre; millions of tourists do just that.
Suppose you want a more profound, more complete experience. In that case, this guide gives you all the information you need to plan a more extended staying, with details on the restaurants, the places where you can have a drink, where you can sleep, and where you can buy unique souvenirs from each of the five villages.
It also lists the places you should visit.
Cinque Terre is the place for walking experiences; the guide presents all the trails, from the simplest to the most difficult ones, even outside the Cinque Terre’s proper area. The courses have an illustration so you can see and decide where to go.
The guide also lists the bicycle rental places and the itineraries for a regular and electric bicycle tour.
There is a long tradition of culinary excellence; the pesto has its origin here.
This culinary tradition also comes from the nearby Magra Valley area. It is now very much frequented by culinary experts, even if it is not as famous as the internationally known main attraction. It’s an even better deal, good quality of the service, in a less crowded environment for superior service. If you come to the area, don’t miss the opportunity to expand your experience.
The Liguria region’s cuisine is rich and varied; at the end of the guide, you have a section covering all its recipes; the links are active when you have an internet connection. You have access to a recipe database for some of them. You will be able to cook at home some of the dishes that you tasted while visiting or dreamed of enjoying it. It’s not the same as consuming the specialty sitting at a restaurant table in the Piazza of Vernazza, but at least it is better than nothing!
