Watch: A Superb Cinque Terre Holiday

The Cinque Terre is one of Italy's most popular travel destinations, and it's well-deserving of this honour. In this article we'll describe what the Cinque Terre is and showcase a video of a Cinque Terre holiday from the Australian TV show Getaway.

A Brief Introduction About the Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre is in the Liguria region, and it translates to 'five lands'. The Cinque Terre is a series of five small fishing villages dug into the cliffs where the Apennine mountains meet the Mediterranean coastline. 

Each village has retained its character and traditions from earlier times, impressively perched between the rocky shoreline and the steep terraced hills. The extensive network of walking trails connecting the villages pass through olive groves and terraced vineyards, with sweeping views of the vast expanse of the Mediterranean below.

Cinque Terre Holiday Video

In this video, Australian TV presenter Jules discovers the beauty of the Cinque Terre. He learns about the local vineyards, the remarkable hillside terraces, and walks the fabled Street of Love between Manarola and Ria Maggiore. 
My favourite part has to be the persistent musician who constantly serenades him throughout the video.
Please do note that this video was filmed in 2011, so the filming quality is outdated, although we can assure you that in real life the views are a high definition spectacle! Plus some details may be dated (it's actually more affordable these days!). If you have any queries feel free to contact us.


If you are yet to experience the Cinque Terre on an active holiday you need to add it to your trip wish list. UTracks offers a variety of affordable walking options.
