The first stage of Via Aurelia leads from Rome, the heart of the former Roman Empire, to Northern Italy and beyond the French frontier to Southern France. Alongside the route you can discover the picturesque national park of Cinque Terre with its five breathtaking small towns Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.

From the fortress of Castello Doria at Vernazza you can enjoy stunning views of the sunny coastline. To those who are interested in culture, we recommend to stop by at the historic cemetery “Necropoli Monterozzi Tarquinia“.
