If you only have one night to spend in Cinque Terre, I recommend Monterosso. Here are the reasons why: 1. Beautiful beach with swimming. 2. Enough shops to browse. 3. Charming alleys and streets. 4. Enough restaurant choices. 5. Ferry and train access to see other cities. We took the ferry to see the Five Cities off shore and it... More

Put your watch and mobile phone away and walk the trails form village to village. Spend 2-3 days away from stress and fuzz, and just enjoy the local food, small hotels and all the nice people you meet along the trip, both locals and other trekkers. You will not regret it !!!

This is my favorite place. It's charming and it's worth visiting! I wish I had more time to spend in these towns. The towns are picturesque, unique and dramatic.

We took the train from La Spezia - the first train was packed like a sardine tin, so we had to wait 40 minutes for the next one. We went to Vernazza first and it was packed - uncomfortably so and seemed full of tourist trap souvenir shops. Hundreds got off the train and swarmed down the own's main street... More

This was my favorite day trip on a recent Mediterranean cruise. The quaint beauty of these cities is really phenomenal. I wish I had more time to spend there.

Just spent 36 hours in Cinque Terre, and walked away wondering what all the hype was about. First the positives: While Cinque Terre is not Amalfi or Tuscany, it is charming and is worth visiting. If other places in Italy didn't also have dramatic cliffs and towns overlooking the sea, then Cinque Terre would be unique. Reality is, Italy is... More

We traveled to Italy recently and everyone told us to go to Cinq Terre. Honestly, we were disappointed. I guess you have to see the villages from the ocean or wherever the "post-card pictures" are take from because our first stop was in Riomaggiore and yes, the place is nice to see but its not as "post-card picture perfect" as...

Most of trail 2 closed...feeling like a broken record on this now, which was a real shame. The towns though were absolutely beautiful and stunning views of them from the boat or from the higher walking trail, route 6, as you approached them...Vernazza and Corniglia the favourites, Monterosso a bit of a seaside town. Trails easy to navigate. Not loads... More

The Cinque Terre, this unique paradise immersed in oasis of natural splendor and a source of pride for the whole country of which take part in the UNESCO world heritage site. Needless to extend into a thousand words to describe this gem of rare beauty. The 5 small villages that compose Cinque Terre are relatively small, usually their visit starts... More

This place will not disappoint! After reading some other recent reviews from travelers I felt it necessary to chime in... Of course there are other tourists here, HOWEVER, it is not overly crowded by any means. I'm staying in Monterosso and have never had to wait to get a table at a restaurant, find a chair at the beach, in... More
