Especially in the low season absolutely must do! No tourist crowds, you're just alone on the path with lovely made paths along the coast

Wow what a view. Just tòok many photos. Easy to reach from La spesia with the train. The whole town was closed on Chrismas day so we only saw the view. 1 restaurant was open for a beer and glass of wine....

O what a hike! Wonderful views and charming villages. You can stop at a bar on the walk but expect "tourist prices"

We only had one day in Riomaggiore (which we will do differently next time), so we only did one hike. Lots of steps, railings came in handy here and there.

Sections were closed on our arrival, but by talking with locals and referencing the maps, able to find routes to the open sections.

If you are visiting Italy you should work this into your trip. It is a beautiful and unique part of the world and a big change from the normal tourist activities in Italy.

Trail 2 is easily one of the most beautiful walks in all of Italy. Best views of the small towns of Cinque Terre, vistas of the cliffs and sea....amazing!

When we went there it was closed because of maintenance. So could not try but we know its pretty good cardio. Before you go you can check online if there is a maintenance or not.

The weather kept us off the trails, the ferrys weren't running due to rough seas, so ALL the tourists were taking the trains between towns. The trains never really ran on a "schedule" and by the time one arrived, the crowd on the platform was massive... More

The Cinque Terre is wonderful. But if its raining...maybe not so much. We only had one day so we couldn't reschedule and the park authorities closed the hiking trails. All of them. So we had to fight the massive crowds of tourists and groups in ponchos riding the trains between the towns. Still scenic, but maybe not worth the hassle?
