The Cinque Terre
The Cinque Terre stretch of coastline is a National Park, a Protected Marine Area, and is included on UNESCO's World Heritage List. After being placed on a list of sites at risk, the Park Authority began a long term project to revitalize the farming practices that created the characteristic hillside terraces, many of which were falling into disuse. The preservation project also aims at a sustainable level of tourism while maintaining the character and beauty of the region. Despite the number of tourists the plan appears to be succeeding admirably. There is a real sense of local identity despite the high number of visitors. Restaurants, bars, and accommodations all have an endearingly homespun air about them. At times it feels as though the locals just found a few garden chairs to stick on their terrace, hand-painted a sign, and began serving customers. The Cinque Terre are (north to south): Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
