Parco Nazionale Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre National Park was considered a UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997. It is located in the coastal region of Liguria, Italy. This park was established in 1999 and is managed by the Italian National Park Service. Its 14.9 square mile size makes it Italy's tiniest national park (38.6 sq km). The fact that the inhabitants of Cinque Terre farmed the steep, sloping ground and constructed stone walls to hem it in for ages is what distinguishes this national park, also known as the Park of Man.

A distinctive feature of the park is the way it unites aesthetic, environmental, historical, cultural, and agricultural significance under the banner of Cinque Terre National Park. Given how the villages are deftly incorporated into the craggy cliff walls, one could argue that it also symbolizes vision and resourcefulness.

The park offers a variety of hiking trails, ranging from easy to challenging, that allows visitors to explore the terraced vineyards, olive groves, and Mediterranean scrub that make up the landscape.
