Cinque Terre
There are five villages along the Mediterranean coast not far from Genua. These villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vermazza and Monterosso, together go to make up Cinque Terre. These old fishing villages are blasted into the mountain slopes and have become popular places for tourists to visit over the last few years. Thanks to the relatively difficult access to the villages, it was not long ago that tourists first began to make their way here, so the villages have been able to retain much of their original charm.

Go bathing in the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean is only about 30 minutes from the castle. There are several nice beaches to visit: Riviera Ponente side (towards Ventimiglia): Varigotti, Celle Ligure, Noli Bergeggi. Riviera Levante side (towards Livorno): Santa Margherita, Paraggi and Portofino.
