Við sigldum frá Monterosso til Vernazza og fórum þar í land. Mjög fallegur bær, með fullt af veitingastöðum og að sjálfsögðu kirkju og kastala. Við gengum upp göngugötuna, fengum okkur drykki en stoppuðum ekki mjög lengi, eða bara í um eina klukkustund, þar sem við sigldum svo til baka til Spezia með síðasta bát.
Frekari upplýsingar um Vernazza hér að neðan:
The small fishing village Vernazza is probably the most characteristic of the Cinque Terre and is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Vernazza was founded about 1000 A.D. and was ruled by the Republic of Genoa starting in 1276. The medieval castle, Belforte, was built in the mid-1500’s, primarily to protect the village from pirates.
An ideal way to arrive to this breathtaking village is by sea. The tiny port is surrounded by subtle colorful typical Ligurian houses and the charming piazza is lined with good restaurants and bars. There is a small, sandy beach in the natural harbor the Church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia.
The village is surrounded by very steeply-terraced olive groves which are said to produce among the finest olive oil in the country.
