Vernazza Dressed In Pink And Blue

Vernazza is one of the beautiful "Cinque Terre" (five small villages on the sea: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso Al Mare) in Liguria.

These five villages and the surrounding lands have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site and are part of the "Cinque Terre National Park".

 

From Wikipedia: Vernazza (Latin: Vulnetia) is a town and comune located in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northwestern Italy. It is one of the five towns that make up the Cinque Terre region. Vernazza is the fourth town heading north, has no car traffic, and remains one of the truest "fishing villages" on the Italian Riviera. Vernazza's name is derived from the Latin adjective verna meaning "native" and the aptly named indigenous wine, vernaccia ("local" or "ours"), helped give birth to the village's moniker.
