I've been wanting to visit the Cinque Terre since I read my first Rick Steves guidebook almost 20 years ago. I had the opportunity last week and went for it. I've traveled a lot to popular places so I am no stranger to keeping a positive attitude with crowds. It's one thing to have to deal with crowds when you... More

Unforgettable day trip from Lerici - Portovenere - 5 Terre. Highly recommended to everyone. Little gems in Italy but to avoid during weekends in summer time. My favourite is Vernazza! Enjoy it

First shock, Italy's love affair with...MOLD. I am not kidding. Hotels, passage ways, entrances, elevators, mold is the smell which I will mostly remember about my travel. There are so many set-backs when dealing with one of the most beautiful areas in the world, that sometimes I simply can't take it anymore. The trains, most of them circulating in the... More

Hiked against the flow of traffic from Vernazza to Monterosso. A good workout, but well worth it! Finished with a swim off the rocks before you hit the crowds as you descend into Monterosso - very cool!

You definitely need more than one day here. We chose the train first then hiking so I can not comment on the ferries. The train is Extremely overcrowded but runs every 30 minutes. So you can put up with it. When it comes to restaurants, bars , stores and beach chairs extremely over priced Having said all that - it... More

It's really easy to get sucked into one of those day trip packages leaving from Florence but it's really not enough time. You gyp yourself out of a day in Florence, travel a lot, and don't really get to enjoy the charm of the CT. I would recommend booking a room or renting an apartment, and settling in to one... More

Don't try to visit all 5 places in one day! Just take your time to relax and walk around. In July there are a lot of tourist, but if you take your time to walk a little further then other tourist, you find beautiful spots and nice people! Take the train!

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
