Vernazza
4.9
2503


Vernazza is perhaps the most beautiful of all the Cinque Terre’s villages, even considering that in 2011 it has suffered the most from flood. The most beautiful pictures of the village can be taken from the glade on Path #2: Vernazza - Monterosso. A very picturesque landscape.

In Vernazza there are two beaches, about which you can read in the section All about beaches (number 6).

Where to eat: in the village, there are a large number of restaurants, bars and other facilities on the square near the sea fitting everyone’s taste.
