CINQUE TERRE PRIVATE TOUR : unforgettable experience

“… Monterosso, Vernazza and Corniglia, nests of hawks and gulls,Manarola and Riomaggiore are progressing from west to east  the names of the few villages or parts of the villages, so holed up in the rocks and the sea …”
(From “Out of the House” of Eugenio Montale)

Thus, the italian poet Eugenio Montale describes these small fishing villages, founded around 1000 not by farmers but by fishermen who, in order to survive,overcame their atavistic distrust of the immensity of the sea, that had been their enemy for centuries, and settled along the coasts to become expert sailors.However, they did not entirely abandon their rural culture and with uncommon strength of will succeeded in taming such an impervious land.
Since then and to this day, with undiminished tenacity,generations of men have transported thousands of cubic meters of earth and thousands of stones to build kilometers of dry stone walls,terraces and vineyards that make  unique  this stretch of the Ligurian coast.
At first, the five villages were just fiefdoms, properties of the most important families of Liguria until they passed under the rule of the powerful Maritime Republic of Genoa around the middle of the 13th century. And Genoa will provide these small colonies of fortifications, walls , towers and churches  of extraordinary beauty and understated , refined work of craftsmen Antelami
To have  a   Cinque Terre Tour it  means finding this world intact, in the gestures of the farmers handed down from father to son,in the hard life of fishermen, in the rough and edgy character of this people  , related to his territory from the  unchangeable relationship of love and hate .
