We really enjoyed the countryside and the amazing but quited strenuous walks between the villages. You can get a one day pass which includes the train and the walkway near the sea (walk no 2) but most of the trails you have to pay for are closed, so we found it cheaper to only pay for the train (single ticket...

As the name says, the national park consists of 5 villages which are individually unique. One needs a good 2 full days to explore all the 5 villages in an enjoyable tempo.

We loved hiking the Cinqua Terre but found the information availableregarding the difficulty of each trail and section of the hike to be totally inconsistent. All literature emphasizes the need for hiking shoes and the difficulty of the hike for section Monterosso to Vernazza yet we found that this was the easiest section of all. The hike from Riomaggiore to... More

We walked the amazing trail between Monterrossa and Vernazza. This trail offers a good workout with amazing views! If you are in decent shape, the path between these two towns should take about an hour to walk, even though the map of the area says it takes two hours. I recommend wearing comfortable, stable shoes with good footing. There are... More

We took a boat trip from Sestri Levante down the coast and visited some of the 5 towns. They were all very picturesque, some of my pictures taken from the boat are stunning. Several of the footpaths between the towns are now closed due to rockfalls, so you need to factor that into any visit.

We visited for the day taking a private tour from Florence. It was a long day but so worth it. The scenery is amazing and the villages are charming. It was my favorite day in Italy so far. There is a lot of walking but enjoyable. We took the boat between two villages and we were glad we did because... More

We stayed in Lerici which allowed us to cross the Gulf of Poets and arrive in Riomaggiore by boat which couldn't be more beautiful. The Cinque Terre has been more than discovered and was packed with Americans. Nothing, including the hordes of tourists, could diminish the grandeur of the walk from Monterossa to Vernazza. It is a rigorous though short... More

I had the chance to spend the day exploring the 5 towns of Cinque Terre last week. I must say that this is one of the most picturesque places I have ever been. You do need to be in pretty good shape as all of these towns are built into the cliff side and there is a lot of walking... More

We decided to use La Spezia as our base to visit the Cinque Terre, as the city is less touristic and you can easier find cheaper accommodation and food. We stayed in a hotel right in front of the train station, so it was really easy to reach it and take the trains to the 5 villages. We bought the... More

Go by tour & visited Monterosso al Mare, Manarola & Riomaggiore. So breathtakingly beautiful! Will come back for all 5 Villages again. Plus snacking on Gelati & berries pie/tart (how I wish I have record the name) so yummy!!!!
