Made up of five picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre is Italy's answer to the French Riviera.
Explore Cinque Terre's surroundings by going to Porto Venere (Portovenere & San Pietro Church). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza, hike along Cinque Terre Trails, look for gifts at Fannys Bazar, and take a stroll around Vernazza.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Cinque Terre trip itinerary planner .

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Cinque Terre is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of flight and train. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Cinque Terre due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Sao Paulo in December: high temperatures in Cinque Terre hover around 15°C and lows are around 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to take a train to Genoa.

There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Aquarium of Genoa, examine the collection at Dialogo nel Buio, take a leisurely stroll along Old Port, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Via Giuseppe Garibaldi.
