The climate of Cinque Terre (Italy)
Cinque Terre consists of five villages situated on the Mediterranean
coast at La Spezia in Liguria, Italy. The five villages, Monterosso al
Mare, Vernazza, Cornoglia, Riomaggiore and Manarola all have been
Unesco world heritage sites since 1997. The villages cannot be reached
by car; only by train or via a footpath that connects these five
villages: the Via del Amore. This footpath offers spectacular views
over the ocean and its coast. This part of the coast is also known as
the Riviera of Flowers and is famous for its delicious white wine.
This area is protected from a cold northerly wind by the Apennines.
The average temperature during the winter is relatively high. During
the summer temperatures are moderated by the influence of the
Mediterranean Sea. However, sudden heavy showers may occur here when
warm and moist air is swept in from the sea and suddenly cools down
when it reaches the Apennines. This mostly occurs during spring and
