Autumnal bliss for all the family on Puglia's coast

Autumnal bliss for all the family on Puglia's coast | France & Italy | Scoop.it

After a 45-minute drive past ugly bungalows and industrial areas, we’re ready to turn around and go home — to give up our annual family holiday. Puglia is not your traditional tourist destination, and we can see why.

 

But then, suddenly, we reach a spot between the foothills of the Appenines and the Adriatic. The air is filled with the scent of figs and there are monumental olive trees, more beautiful than any I’ve ever seen. Their trunks are knotted and gnarled, and they stand in the fields like giant soldiers.

About Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre, "The Five Lands" is composed of five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a U N E S C O World Heritage Site.

Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside.

The Cinque Terre area is a very popular tourist destination however there are also other five villages completely unknown to tourists. These villages are the hidden five lands of La Spezia coast: Persico, Navone, Schiara, Monesteroli and Fossola. At the beginning the villages were wineries and fishing shacks that the people of Biassa and Campiglia used only for a certain period of the year during their arduous daily work on the terraces. Today the houses are used only as second home.
