Dramatically perched atop cliff edges or nestled between them, with starburstcolored homes stacked one on top of the other, the five villages that make up Cinque Terre just beg to be explored on foot (driving actually isn’t permitted inside the villages). Each of the villages — Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore — is crisscrossed by well-trodden hiking trails that wind through flowering fields, past medieval churches and alongside fragrant vineyards. Passes to walk the trails between the villages must be purchased for a small fee. When your feet get tired, hop on a local train or ferry to get to the next village. Whether you want to hike the entire 11-mile distance between Cinque Terre’s villages or just do a segment here and there, your choices are endless.
