The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy That are Worth Visiting
Italy is home to some of the most spectacular, art-filled cities out there, but the country’s true charm lies in some countryside villages. The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy are usually tiny and little-known towns villages.
The famed Italian villages of Cinque Terre have become so congested in recent years. This is the reason why local authorities have considered limiting visitor access. Luckily, there’s an alternative just a few miles down the Ligurian coast. You won’t find any major sights in the fishing village of Tellaro, but its pastel-colored buildings and sweeping sea views offer their own simple pleasures.

Snuggled between two cliffs, the village opens out to the Tyrrhenian Sea like a natural amphitheater.
