Vernazza, Vernazza

4.3
Civic Center · Tourist Spot
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.
