Noli is located in one of the five oldest maritime republics: Noli, a town rich in history and traditions, with one of the most beautiful villages in North Italy, characterized by its towers and ancient walls as protection of invaders from Zena (genoa).
The Cinque Terre, the five towns, is a string of five old fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera in the region Liguria, which until recently were linked only by mule tracks and accessible only by rail or water. To hike along this scenic coastline is the best way to explore the five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces to cultivate grapes and olives on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the Mediterranean Sea.
The breathtaking views of harbors far below the wild but hospitable coastline along with the medieval fortresses and plentiful vines and vibrant colours make this a memorable holiday.
Calabria’s rugged mountains, old-fashioned villages and dramatic coastline provide a fantastic short dive expedition with guided excursions to discover some the Mediterranean’s best kept diving secrets in the sunbaked region of Italy. Divers combine reef, wreck, archaeological and critter aquatic adventures in the crystal blue Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas with its stunning ancient origins on land.
