On the edge of the Italian Riviera not far from Genoa, the Cinque Terre is a group of five villages in a national park which is a UNESCO world heritage site.
As per an international listing by Farawayfurniture.com, it is the most ‘Instagrammed’ village destination in the world, with more than two million pictures.
Travellers posting pictures on Instagram are very fond of Italian villages. Italy has no less than three destinations in the top 10 ranking of the most-Instagrammed travel destinations.
The rugged coastline of the Cinque Terre, which is now a destination for mass tourism, has a total of around 2,049,711 hashtags.
Around 350 kms to the east of this Mediterranean paradise, the second most Instagrammed Italian village in the list is Burano.
Amateur photographers visit these places to take pictures of the streets of colorfully painted houses, a feature of the island destination in the Venetian Lagoon, with around 1,048,053 images on the social network.
The third Italian entry in the list of villages is Alberobello. This village is famous for its trulli, typical southern-Italian stone dwellings with amazing conical roofs.
