Do you want a unique location for a day of relaxation and the beauty of the landscapes? When we talk about the Cinque Terre and an excursion outside the usual itineraries we think of a car rental with driver and the company of whoever you prefer. Here's how to spend a few hours away from the world and the daily grind. The Cinque Terre are an all-Italian natural beauty, nestled between Punta di Cavo Montenero and Punta Mesco, an area rich in bays and peninsulas. A fairytale atmosphere and ancient terraces are the typical characteristics of these areas. The Cinque Terre, as the name of this wonderful land suggests - comes from the five villages that delimit the beauty of the place: Monterosso, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore and, again, Vernazza. With the Cinque Terre Light, the destination will be limited to the elegant setting of Riomaggiore and Manarola, without forgetting the fascinating Portovenere.
