Millions of people , full trains , full cafes and restaurants like you can not breathe. So much advertising for a place maybe nicer if not so crowed. You cannot enjoy the place during the summer definitely. Of course it is nice , but nothing...More

FYI: As of 18 June, only two trails are open: Monterosso to Vernazza and Vernazza to Corniglia. The towns do a good job of being touristy without being too fake. Pisa, in contrast, felt like a carnival of tourist/foreigner things like mini souvenir towers and...More

As old fishing villages go it was probably lovely once upon a time. But that was then. The infrastructure cannot begin to handle the number of tourists it gets. Think Mardi Gras without the party. It’s only interesting for a second. Then you want out...More

This area is beautiful and well worth visiting and five stars - HOWEVER - if you purchase a treno multiservizi ticket to use the trains within the five villages, please ensure that you validate your ticket prior to travel. Unfortunately we did not know that...More

There is no doubt incorporating Cinque Terre as UNESCO World Heritage Site has done wonders for the area and turned five poor coastal villages into a tourist phenomenon. Even the bright coloured painting of the houses was only introduced in the 1970s. Combine that with...More

The Parco Nazionale Cinque Terre is a hiking trail connecting the 5 towns. The trail from Riomaggiore is often closed, but the trails to the north are open. The trails are heavily travelled and you need to pay for the park card to be able...More

Loved my visit to Cinque Terre! We parked in La Spezia and purchased a day pass to visit the five towns starting in Monterosso. Got a late start due to parking issues and poor morning weather but were able to do the hike to Vernazza...More

Go to La Spezia and take the train. You will regret driving into Cinque Terre. Roads are narrow and there will be little to none parking. Parking in La Spezia should be fine.

The day tour out of Florence brings you on one trail. Corniglia to Vernazza, this is the #2 blue trail and is crowded. They bring you to all 5 of the 8 villages, so you are pushed through in 7 hours. I would recommend that... More
