The Most Instagrammable Village In The World

The most Instagrammable village in the world is not one village but five, the dramatic and beautiful Cinque Terre.

Located in Italy’s north, the Cinque Terre is a collection of five World Heritage listed villages, Monterosso, Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola which are precariously perched on dramatic cliff tops overlooking the sea.

It is not difficult to see why they are so photogenic – pastel shades, azure blue seas and that certain rustic Italian charm that combines to make the villages so unique and special, they should be on everyone’s bucket list to visit at least once in a lifetime.
