They’re accessible only via walking paths, train or boat, but this only lends to the already considerable charm of these unique 11th century villages. Today, you’ll enjoy a full day exploring this picturesque coastline and you’ll very quickly come to appreciate why it’s one of Italy’s most visited regions.
