The Fairytale village of Manarola in Cinque Terre

Even if you have not visited any place in the world all your life, you still cannot justify not having been to Cinque Terre, at least once in life time. Such is its charm and romance, a frozen moment in history. You would never have seen such place, except in paintings.


Located on the western coast of Italian Riviera, "The Five Lands" consists of 5 towns, or villages rather, which are connected by walking trails along the mountains and accessible only by boats or a train track from outside world.

Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso are the five villages that form the Cinque Terre, suspended between sea and land on sheer cliffs upon the beautiful sea, with narrow and crooked streets lined with colorful old houses stacked haphazardly on top of each other, and where farmers have eked out a living over the centuries. All the towns slope down to sea-level except for Corniglia, which is perched on top of a tall cliff.

Manarola Park


This region in central Italy is known for its beautiful landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and vast influence on high culture. Some popular cities include Florence, Pisa, and Siena... Yes, the same Siena where James Bond shot Quantum of Solace.

Piazza del Campo

Piazza del Campo is a unique place in the whole of the world, starting with the very particular conformation of the ground, which turns the square into a big concave shell. Here the Sienese organised their spectacular and terrible 'games', later replaced by the Palio.

Ancient Streets of Siena

Pisa is known worldwide for it's leaning tower, the bell tower of the city's cathedral. It is an ancient historic city, so old that the ancient Roman authors referred to Pisa as an old city!
