We had the most wonderful trip…The trek was well organised, we were very well fed, and very comfortable. We considered it to be 5 star camping.
Gustavo our guide did his utmost to see that the trip was an unforgettable experience, and all guides were well informed and friendly

Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre in northern Italy are a series of five small fishing villages dug into the cliffs where the Apennine mountains meet the Mediterranean coast line. Each village has retained its character and traditions from earlier times, impressively perched between the rocky shoreline and the steep terraced hills. The extensive network of trails connecting the villages pass through olive groves and terraced vineyards, with sweeping views of the vast expanse of the Mediterranean below. Beyond the five villages of Cinque Terre the walks take in some of the lesser known villages, towns and stretches of the Ligurian coastline. This centre based walk will see you living like a local, based in an apartment in the charming middle town of Corniglia and sourcing your wine, bread and antipasto from the local provider.

traveller reviews

Had the most fantastic 7 days. On arrival we were advised change accommodation, but it probably was better than where we would have ended up. Water views - and the most fantastic place to stay.
Just magic. A wonderful start to our holiday.
