Boats in Vernazza
Vernazza is the second northernmost town in Cinque Terre. The town is medium-sized as the five towns go (the larger ones being Riomaggiore and Monterosso al Mare).
Vernazza is home to some of the best restaurants in Cinque Terre, so many foodie visitors choose to stay there while visiting the area.
The town also has the best gelato shop in all of Cinque Terre (in my opinion!). The shop is located right on the waterfront, so you can enjoy your cup or cone while watching the sea.
Vernazza boasts of a decent-sized beach as well, so if you like to sunbathe, Vernazza is a good option for a home base on your trip to Cinque Terre.
