3. CINQUE TERRE, ITALY: Cinque Terre’s región is one of the most beautiful ones in the country, Italy. This set of Little towns is located in cliffs and is composed of colorful houses.

We really suggest you to visit Vernazza, Corniglia, Monterosso al Mare, Riomaggione and Manarola, and try to walk through the paths that link all these Little towns in Cinque Terre. Thats the best way to get the most wonderful views to the Adriatic sea.

The better way to get there, is to take a plane to Milan, Florence or Pisa, and then, go by urban buses to La Spezia, or Monterosso.


- What to do in Cinque Terre: We strongly suggest you to visit the outskears of this región, to explore, to discover different towns and meet special people, here, in Cinque Terre.

- Typical dishes: Pesto (Pesto is a garlic-based sauce, but though garlic is, indeed, an essential ingredient, the specific garlic flavor is mitigated, so to say, by the mouthwatering bouquet yielded by the rest of the ingredients: pine nuts, basil, extra virgin olive oil and hard cheese). Salted Anchovies (Anchovies in general can be cooked in a variety of ways: fried and associated with vegetables (potatoes, for instance), brined, drowned in garlic sauce enriched with sundry herbs, or, why not, raw with olive oil and lemon juice. Either way, the anchovies are a must-try on the gastronomic tour of both Cinque Terre and of the entire Ligurian coastline).

- Wonderful restaurants in Cinque Terre:

Tratoria La Lanterna is located right in the proximity of the Riomaggiore marina, which is why it offers clients the occasion to complement their gastronomic experience with the stunning view of the sea. The menu is fairly miscellaneous, but the seafood dishes are the tourists’ favorites since the restaurant is said to keep close to the old traditions of preparing the recipes. Pasta is also appreciated. As if to enhance even more the appeal of the restaurant, the prices are quite reasonable. Reservations are advisable.

Tratoria Gianni Franzi is, by far, the most popular eating venue in Vernazza. Its success is guaranteed both by the restaurant’s location and by the mouthwatering menu which mainly focuses on seafood and fish dishes. Tourists flock to Gianni Franzi precisely because the cooks keep true to the ancient recipes which guarantee the excellence of the taste, of the flavor and of the texture. Briefly put, this is a Ligurian paradise where all palates with a craving for marine bouquets are welcomed with confidence. Reservations are highly advisable. During the tourist season, tables are arranged on the open-air terrace of the restaurant.
