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.

  • 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.)
  • There are many restaurants and bars around the main plaza that overlook at a man made cove. One restaurant is on the hill side with a spectacular view if the sea. However it only opens for dinner at 7PM, when sun is already gone, having a dark sea for your view. While walking through the main street, we found a one room size church, with many candles lit.
