Why you should stay in Vernazza when in Cinque Terre

hiking in Vernazza Cinque terre


Blissful, magical, and all painted in sunset colors. Cinque Terre is the holy grail of travel photography. Vernazza, especially, is the perfect location for a short  but memorable vacation.

Small villages (five to be exact). Intimate beaches. Hiking trails. Cozy restaurants. Cinque Terre cannot be more perfect.

The beauty of Cinque Terre resides in its simplicity. And Vernazza especially is easier to navigate: restaurants on the beach front, wider roads & sidewalks…. Vernazza is the place to stay within Cinque Terre.

While there you can have drinks on the beach watching the sunset, or a quiet  Dinner in a restaurant perched on the hills. This is definitely not Milan. If you want a little peace on the beach without it being predictable, Vernazza  is the place to go.

I did all the above and also woke up early one day and hiked above a hill (behind the church), to take the pictures below:
