This was the last of the 5 villages that we visited and it was really nice. Clearly the harbour is the main attraction and has lots of tourists. The Church is beautiful inside and is a must see

Vernazza is our favourite Cinque Terre village due to a combination of size, colours, walkability, food and drink options, picturesque harbour with breathtaking views of town and ocean, accommodation options and an indescribable feeling of being somewhere very special.

This is the place for you if you are wanting to slow up the pace a little on your Italy adventure! Vernazza is simply stunning. Beautiful views, amazing food and wine and only 3 hours by train from Florence!

We hiked the coastal trails from Monterrosso al Mare to Venazza. The hike was a 10 for its beauty and tough trails climbing steps after steps after steps. Soaking our feet and bodies afterwards was a treat in Vernazza's beach.

We stopped in Vernazza on our tour with walkabout tours- it was definitely a highlight! While you're there, you must try the gelato closest to the water- cinnamon and pistachio are their specialty (and for good reason)!

Even with a mild day in the 40s to 50s this town was quite charming. Most of the stores are closed so you will struggle to find a restaurant or a gift shop.... But the beauty remains! Don’t let off-season deter you from a visit
