Visited four of the five villages in Cinque Terre National Park in May 2016. We visited Monterosso,Vernazza, Corniglia and Riomagiore. The villages are well preserved but extremely tourist, you often have to brush against others in the narrow streets. We trecked from Vernazza to Corniglia and it was a very nice treck, quite a lot of slippery steps but worth... More

It's a very nice trekking tour and if you get tired, you can easily hop on a train and go back home (trains go very often) for some 3-5 euros. If you decide to walk from one village to another, bear in mind that at times the track is really challenging and very steep. You absolutely shouldn't wear flip flops!... More

A local guide in Manarola suggested that instead of commencing our hikes from Manarola, we should take the local bus that stops in front of the post office (fare=1.50€ when purchased ahead of time at the tourism booth at the train station, 3.00€ when purchased on-board) to Volastra. This small town is at the head of two beautiful trails, one... More

Train from Pisa to La Spezia (e16.80 for two) then on to Vernazza, followed by Manarola and lastly Rio Maggiore. Saw all these on the Internet and found them stunningly beautiful. In reality, the places looked run down, paint peeling, so many tat shops with astronomical prices and SO overcrowded. Pick pockets are rife, usually groups of young girls. Such... More

We stayed in Levanto and took the train to Monterosso al Mare which is where we began our hike. We bought our train tickets at the Tourist office the day before and validated them on the day of travel to avoid queues at the station, the cost was 16 euros each for the day and you can hop on/off trains...

I loved Cinque Terre Park and the towns in it. The hiking - strenuous - is very rewarding with the views. The train system is easy to navigate and is very efficient - whisking you from one town to another. I want to go back - 2 nights wasn't enough time.

Every traveller should visit this place. The whole area around is impressive. You can hike it or use the train if you are a slower tourist, there is no shame on that. The day ticket for trails and train is 16 EUR. Some hikes paths are closed.

We couldn't decide how to see this amazing group of towns-hike, car, train, boat, bus....... In the end we went by boat because we both love water. The best decision ever! The view, from the boat, of the small towns nestled within the cliffs was enchanting. As we approached the town docks we saw more than the towns. We saw... More

This is a very strenuous day hike but definitely worth it. The cost of the pass is very affordable. There are places to eat along the way. Bring water bottle! Wear a swim suit. You will want to swim. Take the boat back!

About 10 years ago, my parents visited Cinque Terra. They raved about it. This year, my wife and I had the opportunity to visit...it was totally magnificent and breath taking. The five towns are just amazing. The views are breath taking. Take the time to wander away from the main streets and up the sometimes very long steps. You will... More
