All the seven islands are a well known turist destination. Around the crater and under the sea close to the arbour are active fumaroles that give out sulphur's gasses.
The Cinque Terre, (Five Lands) is a rugged portion of coast on the Ligurian Sea. So called because comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The surrounded land and the villages are National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the past was possible to reach the villages only by boat, from the harbors of La Spezia and Portovenere.

For respect of the past memories, the signes and the names are written in local dialect.
