Riomaggiore and Cinque Terre

Visiting the Cinque Terre, as I love the sea, was a great opportunity to see an area of ​​Liguria that I had never known.

Cinque Terre is a part of the coast of the Riviera di Levante in which stands five municipalities, from west to east: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore.

I was guest of friends in Riomaggiore.

Since 1997 the Cinque Terre are part of the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site because is a landscape of exceptional value that represents the harmonious interaction between man and nature to produce a landscape that shows a way of life traditional and millenarian.

The Cinque Terre are considered one of the most charming Italian coastal attractions for their harsh and rough environment, softened by the construction of terraces or bands for the crop, which falls into the sea with steep slopes; in places where the sea creeps serpentinamente the land rise the villages, articulated to follow the natural shape of the hills.
The man has shaped the territory of the Cinque Terre by building terraces on the slopes near the sea, to take advantage as much as possible has made it one of the most characteristic places of Liguria.

In 1998 the Ministry of Environment has established the Marine Protected Area Cinque Terre for environmental protection, the protection and enhancement of biological resources.
In 1999, was established the National Park of Cinque Terre for the conservation of the ecological balance, protection of the landscape and the protection of anthropological values.

It really is a beautiful place, even if the pressure of thousands of tourists visiting the municipality every day is not a trivial matter. It has transformed the lives and the ancient rhythms of the people living there in a crazy race to business.
