Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso are the small and pretty villages on the sea better known as Cinque Terre in Liguria (Italy). The best way to visit them is by train or by boat, this second way is more special in fact, by the sea, you have a completely different visual of the village and you can reach hidden places that you cannot see from the coast.
The best company for having a boat tour is "Enjoy Cinqueterre boat tours", from Manarola. Paolo and Daniele will guide you in a unique experience telling you about the story, the traditions and customs of the five small villages. Monterosso is the only village with a sandy beach but you can anyway swim and jump from the cliff also in the other ones. The best period for come is from April to October. For who loves hiking, in Cinque Terre there's a lots of beautiful path to do, my favorite is the one that connect Manarola and Corniglia, the view from this path is really stunning! For the photograph lovers in all the villages there's places in which you can take wonderful photos in an amazing frame and from the marina you can be spectator of magical sunsets when the sun get lost in the sea.
