If you are planing to go to Italy, this is one of the place you cannot miss out! It has all the colour and tradition of Italy. The only negative side it is not easy to reach with a car as well as very crowded during summer season. My suggestion is to reach La Spezia and then buy a train... More

Our trip here was much anticipated, but was a big disappointment, Portovenere was far superior. Visited in mid October, but still shoulder to shoulder throng of tourists in every village, most of our time was spent waiting for over crowded trains that are far too infrequent and unable to get on trains due to them being so full. Villages are... More

Stay in CInque terre at least 3 days/2 nights.. If you want a cheaper stay, choose la Spezia, near the trains station and easy access to Cinque Terre. Manarola is the most beautiful of the cities, Corniglia is the most charming, but with loooong stairs, and monterosso, very suitable for swimming..

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
