Create an itinerary including Vernazza
An integral piece of the Cinque Terre region, Vernazza is perhaps the most preserved example of a true Italian fishing village. Admire Mediterranean and harbor views from the city's 15th-century hilltop castle. Wander the town's cobbled streets, lined with stone churches, pastel-colored homes, and ornate buildings. You can only get around town on foot, so wear comfortable walking shoes. The climb to the summit may be difficult for people with mobility issues. Put Vernazza and other Cinque Terre attractions into our Cinque Terre visit planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Vernazza may not have the scenic viewpoints of Manarola and Riomaggiore, but the food scene is great here in Vernazza. I would recommend getting your food here during your stay in Cinque Terre...

  • A MUST! I was built in the year 1000. This place is beautiful, from above you can appreciate the town with a panoramic and unique view. To get to the top you must walk uphill, it is not an easy walk and you could get tired, so wear comfortable shoes and water, you will need it when you get up. On your way to the top you will be breathless, each hill makes you look at the Mediterranean with different eyes, the cobblestone houses are beautiful and you will walk among ancient and colorful streets. On the way you will find restaurants with a great view to eat or drink coffee. I would definitely go back, I love this place.💙
  • 2 euro charge once you get near the top. There are a lot of other great views in Cinque Terre that are free. There isn't anything at the top besides the view, so decide if it is worth it to you. (Could be nice to bring lunch up.)
