Though the walks are quite spectacular, and the scenery surrounding the cities are likewise, one feels that the concept of cinque terre is beeing overused and touristified in such a way that it becomes difficult to enjoy the cities. I was left witj a disturbing feeling, that I was glad to get out of there. There are several other cities... More

We visited Cinque Terre as a day trip from our cruise ship.After all the noise all over the net how wonderful this place is, that was the most awaited for excursion for my whole cruise.But honestly, at the end of the day,when whole two hours were left of the free time, I really wished they could've been only minutes.

Highly recommended to be part of the Cinque Terre visit experience. Ask your tour company to give you 3 hrs to enjoy the beach for at least an hour plus the leisurely walk and sightseeing. Don't buy the overly prized panini and other sandwiches. Prepare some light packed lunch with you fresh from the many markets wherever you are staying.... More

We loved the tour through the beautiful seaside villages. Manarola, Verrazo, and Monterosso were the 3 our tour went to. All three were beautiful. The history of the towns is amazing. The UNESCO world heritage national park is just fascinating. I would love to go and stay in one of the B&B's in one of the villages to explore the... More

This park area in the NW of Italy is truly outstanding. Regional trains cover the distance between all the towns in no time and their frequency is equal to their major city cousins. Of course the real beauty of the region can best be seen by walking the various tracks between the towns. Unfortunately 2 of the 4 tourist walks... More

The five little villages are picture perfect. Everyone is different. Loved going by train to each, but in hind sight we should of gone by ferry to some. The train goes through tunnels, and the ferry you would see the beautiful scenery all the way. Loved going into all the little local shops and getting treasures to bring home. Plenty... More

A bit of hassle to get to - but well worth it. I used the trains in between each of the villages, but I wish I would have walked. Time as ever was an issue - the train allows you to take your time in each village. Vernazza is rightly the one in all the pictures - however Manarola is... More

Recommended by a friend who had lived in Italy for many years, we eventually, decided to pay a day trip to the Cinque Terre. I wasn't sure about visiting, expecting to find some fishing villages, pretty scenery and a superabundance of tourists. Furthermore, most sites guides advise you not to drive there and I wasn't really in public transport frame... More

If you are tired of laying on the beach, walk a few yards/meters to the highway and check out the shopping. Really not too expensive and a nice selection. Or stop at one of the many places to get gelato or lemonade and just watch the sea.

If you're anywhere within the vicinity of Cinque Terre National Park, you should not miss out on this place. The views, villages, food and atmosphere is just amazing. The ideal itinerary would be spending 2 days and 2 nights in the villages. You could choose to stay in any of the villages and travel between them as they are very... More
