One of the five towns or 'Cinque Terre' of the so called Italian Riviera, near La Spezia, Vernazza is a charming fishing village with its own natural harbour. Once in a state of emergency from October 2011 when it was hit by freak floods and mud slides, it is now open again to travellers and back in business. Hotels.com has chosen a variety of bijou and welcoming Vernazza hotels to satisfy all of your high standards. Accommodating differing budgets and requirements, all of these establishments will delight the traveller looking for an authentic Italian experience in a picture perfect seaside town. Photographs on Hotels.com of the exterior of each hotel and also of all the living areas will help you to make the right choice of our hotel accommodation in Vernazza, which is situated at the end of the famous Cinque Terre hiking trail. The candid reviews of former hotel guests will give you insider knowledge of each establishment.

Wandering around glorious Vernazza

With pastel coloured, historic houses lining the cliff sides down to the harbour, Vernazza is a glorious destination. Working vineyards surround the town, and fishermen still fish the waters round the harbour. Vernazza is car free. Take the train from La Spezia and you will be treated to awe inspiring sea views. Cinque Terre is a Unesco World Heritage site. Trails lead off from Vernazza to the other towns, which are all about a two hours walk apart. When you stay in Vernazza, this quintessentially Italian town, you can soak up the sun by the sea, or wander along the cliff tops. The path inland to the peaceful 13th century Reggio Sanctuary is along a donkey track, lined with lemons and oranges. There is the medieval Belfort Castle above the town and the pretty white Church of Santa Margherita d'Antiochia on the harbour.

Mingling with the locals in Vernazza

Vernazza is a genuine Italian fishing and farming village and you will meet many locals going about their everyday business. If they appear a little less friendly than in other more cosmopolitan Italian tourist destinations, just smile and say please and thank you (per favor and grazie) in Italian and you will soon be given a warm welcome. When you stay in Vernazza in our selected Hotels.com hotels, you will find a satisfying array of cafes and restaurants with wood burning pizza ovens and delicious gelato or ice cream. Be sure to order pesto as Vernazza is renowned for this basil-based pasta sauce. For a truly romantic tradition, couples can lock a padlock along the Cinque Terre hiking trail, and fling the key into the sea to ensure everlasting love.
