Cinque Terre apartments - a vacation along the beautiful Italian coast!

cinque terre accommodations and vacation apartmentsThe Cinque Terre is a ruggedly beautiful region of the coast of the Italian Riviera, comprising "Five Lands", as the name spells out: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

Each of these hilltop towns holds its own unique charm and offers breathtaking views into the Mediterranean sea and the horizon beyond. Your Cinque Terre apartment will give you easy access to each of these towns, as you can follow the walking path that connects them on your mission to taste the homemade pesto in Vernazza or stop and listen to a local violinist in the piazza of Manarola. Take a dip alongside the locals in the warm waters off the coast of Monterosso, or peruse the rustic art shops and boutiques in Corniglia for a souvenir of this picturesque area. Don't forget to grab a cone of gelato in Riomaggiore, which will tantalize your palette as you meander through the streets.

There is also a train stop in each town that can easily transport you between them or to other impressive cities further down the coast, like Portofino or Santa Margherita Ligure. The location of your Cinque Terre apartment gives you the good fortune of stepping out into town and tasting the mouthwatering seafood, sipping the delicious red wine made from the vineyards that line the mountainsides, and sampling the specialty of the area - pesto made from freshly pressed olive oil and a variety of locally baked focaccia bread.

apartments for rent in cinque terre The truly adventurous traveler will try a drop of grappa, which is a brandy made with the pomace left from winemaking. The local Italians will give you a hearty slap on the back for washing down this bitter, yet classic regional specialty. A glass of limoncello, a sweet liqueur flavored with lemons, will delight your taste buds and prompt your feet to start moving as you join the dancing in Vernazza's main town square!
