Vernazza is one of the five villages which make up Le Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) in the Liguria coast in Pcia. De Le Spezia, Italy. This beautiful region was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, along with some islands and other areas of Italy. Vernazza is perched on a rocky peninsula jutting out into the sea and you can only get there by a regional highway. It's believed that the name comes from Vernaccia, a type of wine typical of the region. There's a small harbor where you can take small boat trips along the coast. The views, especially those from boats, are among the most beautiful I've ever seen.
It is possible, even in Europe, to discover lost paradises, charming places at the seaside, without much tourism, beautiful, authentic, amazing, havens of peace and tranquility where you feel like you can finally breathe and these moments remain engraved in your memory as one of the most magical moments and one of the most meaningful and memorable "snapshots" of your life. Even more difficult still ... It is possible that that place and that time can take place in the middle of August in Italy, in one of the most touristic countries in the world? For me that place is "The Five Lands" , situated in the Riviera Liguria, Italy.
