Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre National Park, is amongst the smallest parks in Italy and, at the same time, the most densely populated, with approximately 4.000 inhabitants subdivided in the five villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.
For centuries the inhabitants of Cinque Terre have made the steep slopes of the hills rising straight from the sea, cultivable strips of land supported by dry stone walls: the terraces are the true identity trait of Cinque Terre.
The National Park, has as its focus, the protection of this peculiarity which, due to the abandonment of the agricultural activity, has led to phenomena of landscape degradation.
It is of essential importance that man continues to intervene on the landscape by cultivating it and taking care of it and by rediscovering the ancient gestures of those who have made of the Cinque Terre a territory famous all over the world and as a World Heritage Site.

Lerici

Lerici is located on the easternmost part of the Gulf of La Spezia, near the estuary of the river Magra. Of very ancient origin, it was under the Bishops of Luni. It was an important port where travelers and pilgrims arrived, who through Sarzana, connected to Via Francigena toward Rome or Northern Italy.

Lerici displays, still today, its original medieval structure, with the characteristic houses lined up along the narrow alleys. Inside the village are of interest the Jewish Ghetto, the castle at the feet of which is located the relaxing walk on the Vassallo waterfront.

In its territory, stands out the locality of Tellaro, a typical fishing village where, still today, boats meet on the small square on the sea and where a suggestive view of the Gulf can be enjoyed.
