We were unsure whether to visit Portovenere on a recent trip to the Cinque Terre. Originally we were intending to spend most days walking the trials and a half day boat trip along the Cinque Terre coastline. However, with two of the costal legs closed we decided to make a full day of our boat trip, and extending it from... More

You would be doing yourself an injustice if you stayed on the Cinque Terre for any less than 4 days. We were there in September and experienced excellent weather in the mid-20s. Staying in Vernazza, we would walk between one or two towns each day and catch the train back for the evening. This worked well for us. The paths... More

If you are in relatively good health, this is one of the must dos in Cinque Terre. Is doesn't matter what town you are in, you can hike from one to the next. There are varying degrees of difficulty, but all offer spectacular views. I have hiked three of the trails and enjoyed the experience each time. Take a nice... More

A visit to Cinque terre was my wish for a long, long time, so we went for my mum's 60th birthday. And it was all I wished for and more! Five small, colorful, picturesque villages linked together with trails and trains :) The first one if you are coming from La Spezia, where we slept, is Riomaggiore, a wonderful beginning... More

The Cinque Terre are a lovely place to visit with stunning walking trails between the five villages. We stayed in Corniglia which is the smallest village and is not overrun with tourists so is much nicer and quieter. The walks between Corniglia and Vernazza and between Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare are pretty straightforward for anyone used to longish walks.... More

We started the tour with a 2.5 hour bus ride to enter the region in a downpour in Firenze and I was gutted, but in no time the weather changed and the wonderful trek ensued. The guides provided lots of good tidbits of information and history all the way to the first "pit stop." The day included a hike, multiple... More

It's hard to call this a park since it's really a handful of small towns built into the mountain side & liked by hiking trails & the train. Plan to spend a full day there unless you only have time for one of the 5 towns. Also, be prepared for crowds especially if a cruise ship is in port. If... More

We stayed in an apartment in Monterosso and this was really good, it was a two bedroom apartment and had all the facilities required, it was also not far from the water and the cafe's along the walk. There are two sides to Monterosso, the old city and the new city. The old city is just lovely, lots of little... More

This review is not for the park, but for the region..... We had looked forward to our tour to the Cinque Terre as a highlight of our recent cruise..... Sadly the crowds and some rude behavior ruined the experience. The best town was actually where we began, in Porto Venere (where a shopkeeper offered samples of the best pesto we... More

Explore the park's hiking trails and truly experience the natural beauty that you cannot get inside of the picturesque little towns. Be prepared for a moderately strenuous hike. Bring lots of water (and fill up in each town) and wear sturdy shoes. The stairs are killers but the views are worth it!
