Vernazza

The Old Village of Vernazza

Vernazza is an ancient village dating back to the One Thousand and one wonderful seaside resort at Cinque Terre in the Province of La Spezia, in the fascinating Liguria. The Municipality is part of the National Park of the Cinque Terre with its coast located in a protected area and the fishing regulated by strict rules to protect the its ecosystem.

The Cave Maemuna is a crack in the cliff that allows access only by sea up to fifty meters in the same cave, and a great place for lovers of diving for its crystal clear waters. Locally, a diving center  will advise you at best for the most appropriate equipment and give advice to dive safely. Vernazza is also equipped with a small port that can accommodate up to two hundred boats.

Area full of alternative routes

In Vernazza there are routes linking the coastal towns of the Cinque Terre, all accessible with just over an hour’s walk from the village center, for example, the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Reggio located near a ridge and a little more further along the path, the Chapel of San Bernardo. The route is also graced by the presence of olive trees and vines that on these hills express their full beauty as sheltered from the wind and with excellent exposure to the sun in order to give birth to the good white wine and the fortified wine of Cinque Terre known as the “Sciacchetrà”.
