We went by car on a very small and curvy road because we had the car, but if you can, rent a scooter or go by train. The amazing views and the whole Italian experience is unforgettable.

We were on a cruise that stopped in Livorno in May 2014. We got off the ship early and took a shuttle from the port to Piazza Grande (5 Euro for a day pass) and then took the bus #1 to the train station (Piazza Dante). We then bought our train tickets for "La Spezia" which were 18 Euro for... More

We booked to spend 5 days exploring the 5 towns of the Cinque Terre. Our break started on the wrong foot as the hire car we arrived in from Naples was to be returned to La Spezia our first day. The address was wrong on the drop off sheet and could not find the rental depot. This meant we had... More

We wanted to take the train in La Spezia and wanted to buy a Cinqueterrecard (for the paths and train) in the trainstation. We arrived half an hour before the train left, but we didn't catch it. There were about 50 or 60 people before us waiting to buy the card! There were only 2 people in the office, giving... More

The five centres are unique and beautiful. Such vibrant colour and all built into extraordinary mountain countryside. The train trip is short but exciting and any one of the towns is worth exploring and walking. The sea is so blue and the good weather stays by the shore which is clean marble chippings.

I have to agree with the other reviewers , trains overcrowded, people being pick pocketed by the locals taking advantage of the overcrowding of the trains, authorities closed one of the paths to charge 7.50 which means more money and more people like sardines, anyways it's a must do but once not for more than a day or two ,...

Having seen so many amazing pictures from Cinque Terre I went there with the expectation of a dream trip. Unfortunately, the reality did not match the expectations: the villages are cute but quite run down (buildings) and over crowded. The walking paths were closed. The transportation infrastructure is terrible, with trains and train stations over crowded, mainly because they are... More

This as not as easy to do as I was led to believe. you need hiking shoes and poles if 50+ even in good shape, but it is beautiful, but challenging. Just do it!

Cinque terre not what we imagined. The villages are very overcrowded. Only one of the walks is open. The train links between the towns run infrequently, are often late and are very crowded. Cant imagine how the place has national park status. The park staff are the most unhelpful dis-interested, rude people ever encountered on our travels giving out no... More

What great fun we had hiking the Cinque Terre with Viator Tours. Highly recommend. The "5 Lands" (Cinque Terre) are beautiful and are connected by hiking trails, trains and a Ferry Boat. So getting from land to land is easy. You'll find lovely little shops and restaurants in the heart of each city and a great many steep hills to... More
