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

I took the train to Corniglia and dropped off my bag, got on the local train to Monterosso and hiked back to Corniglia. This took several hours in total, including a delicous lunch of pesto pasta and fresh anchovy in Vernazza. It was a beautiful, clear fall day and the hike was challenging (lots of steps and elevation). Some places... More

We did this as a day trip from Pisa. Once there you will see colorful towns going straight up the mountain sides. For the hearty souls you can walk ancient trails between the 5 towns OR you can hop a train to each of the towns. We decided to take the ferry from one furtherest point to the other and... More

Overrun with annoying American school kids & tour groups from cruise ships. Hard work to get to anywhere due to the steep terrain but thats what makes it unique. Everything is up a flight of steps. Most of the walks are closed, you will get told a different answer from different people, but thats expected in Italy. Its a pretty... More

Cinque Terre is an unforgettable and beautiful place, from the first until the last little town. But the pathways are not in good conditions. Many of they are closed. We took the tickets for train & pathways, but we could walk only one of the trails by the sea, others were closed. The train stations has the bathrooms in terrible... More

On our honeymoom, we planned to go from La Spezia last week to Riomagiorre, and do the full Cinque Terre. Up at 7, and up to the train station we found that the early morning train was delayed/cancelled, and there was no further train for 1hr 50 mins. Not a good start! We had just bought out 2 passes for... More

Excellent trekkink from a village to an other. Quite difficult but along the ocean ,most of the time;view unique of the villages hanging from the roc over the ocean. the train is very efficient to go from one village to the other. These villages are all interesting with lots of restaurants and shops.We stayed in Levanto, not one the 5villages,... More

Lovely spot but very crowded. We went on a Sunday which was likely a busy day anyway but the crowds were awful. It would have been a nice place to visit otherwise. We found the best thing to do is sit on a bench and people watch. The only way to get from one village to the next was by... More

My wife and I did a day tour from Florence with Walkabout Florence through Viator. It was hassle free to book and meet up with the guides at the Florence Train station. Once organised, it's about 2.5 hour bus ride to Cinque Terre. The bus dropped us off at village #2 - Manarola. It's a pretty small town, and being... More

Because three of the paths were closed, the tourists were all packed together and there was much confusion about when which trained stopped where. The staff did the very best they could but it was disappointingly packed with tourists, not spread out evenly because of closed paths.
