Vernazza

Cinque Terre Vernazza

Beach: yes, small.
Travel tips: Most tourists like Vernazza more than any other city. It is a nice place to rest; the small sandy beach is located here, as well as large stones, on which you can lie down. Also there is the beautiful square with many restaurants with straight view on the sea.

History:


Its origin dates back to the Roman age, but until the year 1000 B.C. due to security reasons the population lived more inland, on the heights of Reggio. During the Middle Age Vernazza was an important harbour ruled by the families of Da Passano, Ponzò and Fieschi, until it was finally owned by Republic of Genoa starting from 1276. The importance of Vernazza in the history of Liguria is highlighted by its urban arrangement. Typical tower-shaped houses extend along a river valley up on the summit of a rocky outcrop hiding the view of the village core to anyone approaching from the sea. In addition, more refined architecture is also present, such as loggias, porticoes and decorated portals.
