Cinque Terre Blue Walk Italy European walking vacation

Where in the World?

The Italian Riviera, synonymous with Italy’s Liguria region, is a crescent-shaped strip of Mediterranean coastline between the south of France and Tuscany. Its eastern half, the Riviera di Levante, is defined by its rugged cliffs, turquoise coves and pastel seaside towns, including the Cinque Terre fishing villages, and it’s stylish resort areas including Portofino. Lake Como, in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, is an upscale resort area known for its deep-blue waters set against the rugged, forested foothills of the Alps and coastlines dotted with colorful Mediterranean Villas. Both are ideal locations for your Italy walking tour vacation.
