The Most Instagram-Worthy Places in Cinque Terre


Vernazza

Brimming with color and charm, it's difficult to pinpoint the many Instagrammable spots in Vernazza. So it's only fair to consider the entire town as one Instagram-worthy place, isn't it? Even from outside the village, when you see it in its totality from afar, the colorful town already looks as pretty as a picture. Just look at how those shades of yellow, orange, red, and beige contrast well against the lush greeneries of the Liguria region's forested mountains to the aquamarine tones of the Italian Riviera. And when you go to the harbor, you'll find the town's Medieval charms glow even more!

Manarola

Another Cinque Terre town worth taking an Instagram snapshot for is Manarola. Perched atop rugged cliffs and high hills by the sea, the entire village looks like it ought to be in a film! Its cinematically idyllic beauty is second to none, further amplifying the innate old-world charm of the Italian countryside. Of course, when you explore the town yourself, you'll find that the narrow pathways, mysterious corners, and bustling avenues are just as picturesque as, but the coastlines nearby are truly a photographer's paradise! Make sure you charge your phone or camera because you'll be snapping away for a pretty long time!

Nessun Dorma

Speaking of Manarola, there's another place where you really ought to visit if you're looking for that Instagram shot that will garner thousands of likes: Nessun Dorma! Despite its name, the restaurant doesn't have any connection to the famous aria by Giacomo Puccini. It does however present a stunning view of the town. Perched atop a nearby mountain trail, this is the perfect vantage point if you want to capture the coastal city in all its glory! Although the restaurant itself is a pretty place with a natural pathway and the like, it's really the views from here that will give worthy content for an Instagram post!

Fegina Beach

Fegina Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Cinque Terre. In terms of Instagram-worthy places, this is the one that many travelers have posted about. The iconic orange-and-green-striped umbrellas, the white sandy shoreline, and the teal-toned waters all define Mediterranean energy in the best way. It helps you harken back to Federico Fellini films or visions of Brigitte Bardot lying naked on the beach getting a tan (even though the latter took place in France!). If you want your followers to instantly recognize that you traveled to Cinque Terre, this is the place you have to post about on Instagram!

Add in a Medieval castle and the place almost looks like a fairytale kingdom from a storybook. But upon closer inspection, you'll find that the surrounding greeneries are actually vineyards and the colorful houses look even brighter in person!

Scoglio di Monterosso

In Monterosso Beach, there is a rock by the coast that you really ought not to miss! Against the backdrop of white sands, orange umbrellas, and blue-green seas, this naturally formed rock, which almost looks like a smaller, Mediterranean version of 'Pride Rock' from the 1994 Disney animated classic 'The Lion King,' is a definite must-see. The visual impact of the rock alone will capture your Instagram followers' attention in a heartbeat! But when you climb the rock yourself and take a selfie from here? They'll all be green with envy!

Convento Frati Cappuccini Monterosso al Mare

Who would've ever thought that, with so many places to capture in Cinque Terre, a convent will be one of them? But then again, once you see the majesty of this abbey, perched atop a mountain in the Liguria region, you'll be snapping away before you know it. There's almost something sinister and eerily beautiful about the place, further fascinating you to the point that you can't help but share it on Instagram. As for a visual highlight, the statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the convent's patron saint, that looks over the Italian Riviera, will blow your followers' minds away!
