Liguria, Italy is home to countless summertime vacation hotspots including Sanremo, Genova, Portofino, La Spezia, and five technicolor fishing villages collectively known as Cinque Terre. It is the Cinque Terre meaning “Five Lands” that make up the most colorful, postcard-worthy section of the Ligurian coastline.

Today’s Pictures of Italy gallery is dedicated to these colorful cliffside towns. Included below are 40 photos and Art Prints created by ALOR Italy Head Photographer Paolo Ferraris from the Cinque Terre.

Cinque Terre Villages
Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore form a string of centuries-old seaside villages connected by two cliffside hiking paths the Sentiero Azzurro “Blue Path” and the Via dell’Amore “love path.” Each village, has walking paths, a national park, and a protected marine area.
While each village is unique in the Cinque Terre one thing they all share colorful houses, steep terraces lined with vineyards, and epic sea views. It’s no wonder the bold colors of Cinque Terre inspired one of Paolo’s most vivid Colors collections. New to ALOR Italy?
