The Cinque Terre are situated on an indented part of the Eastern Ligurian Riviera coastline within

the region of La Spezia. Between Punta Mesco and Punta di Montenero, you can spot five villages

named “terre” – the equivalent of “lands” – as they were once named in the past. West to the East,

you can find: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore. Thanks to their

territorial geographic and anthropic features, the Cinque Terre are one of the most important

tourist attractions along the Riviera surrounding La Spezia and, why not, of the whole Ligurian one.

This is due to their hill position which is essentially rugged and rough - modified by cultivation terraces

or belts of land, though. These slope down with steep sides towards the sea where it

waves into the land. Here the villages lay and wind along the natural hill skyline.

Carrara Marble Caves.

Marble caves are unmatched, and a visit should not be missed. They are renown as the largest marble

district in the world. They are in the mountains North of Carrara and belong to the Apuan Alps.

The marble veins follow the three main valleys branching off behind the city of Carrara: Colonnata,

Miseglia and Torano. These marble caves are extraordinary, unmatched and beyond all words.

No photo can fully convey what you feel when you find yourself surrounded by

these very high, totally white and shining marble mountains.
