Stop At:

"Rubra" used to be the ancient Latin name given to this village because of the reddish colour of the hills at sunset. "...Rocky and austere village, refuge for fishermen and farmers", as the Nobel Price Eugenio Montale described the village of Monteroaao, summer retreat of his family. A rich church and a lot of narrow and fresh "carruggi" are the setting for lively lemon trees.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Vernazza

The web of "carruggi" (narrow lanes) and steep stairways converges in the main square overlooking the sea. This is the centre of the village, where stands the church dedicated to Saint Margaret of Antiochia (1318) with its foundations in the sea.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: View Point Corniglia

In ancient times, the village was more extended southward, but strong slumps due to the sea have caused a number of landslides of the hill. This is now a long cliff, connected with the village by 365 steps, numbered like the days of the year. This village was built around the XI century and still preserve its charm.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Borgo Storico di Manarola

Its name almost certainly derives from "Manium Arula" (dead souls temple). The harbour is formed by a terraced promenade with boats hanging at the foot of a handful of coloured houses. Above the hills you'll find the terraces with vines growing on them... these are the vines of Cinque Terre, a dry white wine, rough like the sea.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Borgo Storico di Riomaggiore

A jewel of the Cinque Terre, this village was founded at the end of the XII century. Along the charming road down to the "Marina" you will find the typical coloured houses, which seem to cling to one another, with the boat dock in the middle.
