On the Cinque Terre you are able to enjoy some of the finest coastal walking in Europe. We believe this may be the most beautiful section of the Italian Riviera. The five charming villages of the ‘Chinquay Terray’; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore have been praised by artists and poets for centuries. They have celebrated the tiny aquamarine inlets that serve as fishing harbours and the ancient terraces rising steeply out of the coastal crags in words and pictures.

There are gentle coastal strolls and strenuous hikes alike. Walk into the surrounding hills through the precarious cliffside vineyards and scented pine forests. You can visit Cinque Terre's churches, viewpoints, seasides and beaches of the neighbouring towns. Each of the Cinque Terre towns and villages has its own unique character and flavour. The evening light on the sea is quite sublime and there are a whole host of restaurants and ice cream shops to top off your Cinque Terre hike.

Visas

Visas not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see www.schengenvisainfo.com/schengen-visa-countries-list/ for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage. You will need it to change money and check into hotels. Where safety deposit boxes are available, we recommend that you use them. Keep jewellery and valuables to a minimum.
