Cinque Terre

UNESCO World Heritage - Five Lands

The Cinque Terre is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. In each of these 5 towns, nestled along the Lingurian coast of Western Italy, colourful houses and ancient vineyards cling to steep traces, fishing boats bob in harbours and trattorias turn out seafood specialities along with the Liguria region’s famous sauce, pesto”. This place is part of UNESCO World Heritage. The word “Cinque” means five in Italian and “Terre” is the plural form of “Terra” which is land or earth, so Cinque Terre is a direct translation for Five Lands. The reason behind this name is because there are five towns or villages that make up this area.
