Cinque Terre

On the Ligurian coast, the five villages of Cinque Terre — hence the name — make up just one of Italy’s 51 World Heritage Sites, the most of any country. Start in Monterossa and walk to Vernazza (or all the way Riomaggiore) on a path through terraced vineyards and overlooking the water. On your way, stop at local restaurants for seafood and pasta with pesto; the basil sauce was created in the area. World Heritage site since 1997. (Photo: Loop Images/UIG via Getty Images)
