We found the villages and coastline of the cinque terre very pleasant and were glad we did a day trip from Florence. However, our enjoyment was severely limited by a range of poor services on the part of the local authorities. The first problem was with trains. We made plenty of time and had details of specific trains (with tickets... More

The Cinque Terre is lovely of course, and very accessible by train. We went from Genoa, got off at Corniglia, hiked the trail to Vernazza, and then trained back to Genoa from there. If you go in July not surprisingly it is a scrum, at least in the towns, while the trails have a few people you runinto along the... More

Cinque Terre is so crowded, a place for hippies, massive tourism and low budget planners, nothing wrong about that, but let's say what it is. There is no reasonable way to walk from one place to the other one because it takes you forever. Hotels and restaurants are low or middle class, generally. The only town that has a decent... More

This is one of the most spectacular places I've been to...anywhere. The train that runs from village to village is such a delightful way to get around, in addition to the beautiful walks. Highly recommend for any bucket list :-)

Been a couple times. The trails between corniglia-Vernazza and vernazza-monterosso are beautiful. Took our 7yr old daughter and she had a blast!

I was first here in 2007. While the villages were connected, it was still relatively undiscovered and not over run with tourists. The trails were open and it was still relatively unknown. Then the area became popular, was hit with floods a few years ago, and still has not totally recovered. Projects were setup to rebuild the area with some... More

It was great to see the villages. The train was very convenient to have, and easy to figure out. The best part, they were air conditioned. The drive up to Monterosso was ok. While the roads looked wider than the Amalfi coastal roads, the Cinque Terre roads felt more treacherous to drive on. Having been to both areas in one... More

Cinque terre is a beautiful place which you have to visit when you're in the area. Every village has it's own special character and is worth while. As they are hard to reach the best way is tho use the train of boat. We went for the train which proved to be the wrong choice. Arrivals and departures are completely... More

Overcrowded, rude locals and garbage everywhere!!! Very rude local who are clearly annoyed by the tourist invading their towns every day. We got verbally insulted by a local woman who just "had it with the many tourist" as she said. Very sad to see so much garbage in the streets A beautiful area that unfortunately has been mismanaged. I wish... More

We walked the only part of the trail that hasn't been closed due to landslides - between Vernazza and Monterosso - it took us 2.5 hours and we got through a couple of litres of water. To be honest the best way to see Cinque Terre is probably just by boat as the views are often obscured by trees and,... More
