Stopped at the Chinque Terra on a day trip with our tour. From Luca it was a bus ride, and a ferry ride. Only saw 2 of the villages. Wasn't aware the quick walk to the ferry was considered a village. The next town had a small, rocky beach. The usual tourist shops, restaurants and gealto. Hate to say this,... More

Certanly a must if you go to Italy, great place with stunning view over the sea and the cities. Narrow streets and lots of stairs, the colourfull buildings combined with the coastline go perfect together.

We arrived by car, which is usually not recommended. It was OK, although the road down to Monterosso is quite curvy. We found 2 parking options in different searches and used Fegina parking in the village, at the sea and close to the train station. The price 2.5 euro/hour may make you consider the train option in case you have... More

Took an all day coach trip from Florence to various small towns within Cinque Terre. Gorgeous scenery, due to rough sea we jumped on local trains to drop into the little colourful villages ending up on one of the beaches enjoying the fresh air and paddling in the sea. So pleased to have discovered this hidden gem.

I do not understand how people can high score the Cinque Terre trail. I expected to do a long and wonderful hike in a National Park but... 1. Half of the trail is still closed after the 2011 flood and nobody knows when will be re opened (It was expected by 2016 but someone told us probably in 2018) 2.... More

We spend 3 full days in the Cinque Terre and absolutely loved it. It was more than we expected, magical and beautiful. Walkers can do it all in 1 day if fit but from our experience by doing that you miss the real beauty. Walk a couple of trails one day then have another day to just relax, swim and... More

I fell in love with Cinque Terre. I love the colourful houses and the views from above and ground level. It's just amazing how the houses are built in cliffs/rocks!

The trails and the hikes are great, and so is the scenery, but there is just one big problem. If Cinque Terre gets so much money from tourists, couldn't they do a little bit about the park? First of all, the trains are covered in so much graffiti, you can't even see where the doors are. If there are so... More

First of all, I would not recommend driving to Cinque Terre. The best way to get here is by train. Buy a multi use, unlimited pass to get you by train from La Spezia to all the 5 villages in Cinque Terre. The pass allows you unlimited use of the train and also buses between villages. It also allows you... More
