We decided to take the north-south coastal route through the Cinque Terre as we wanted to end up back at Riomaggiore where our hotel was located and also wanted to get the most difficult sections of the route out of the way during the early part of the day while we were freshest. It turned out this was a really... More

Maybe because it was the low season but I was a bit let down. I visited all 5 villages and found everything closed, nor a bar or restaurant, it was like a cemetery. I know the low season but not lile this. To be honest also I think these places look much better on photos then actually being there.

My cousin and I set out to hike the entire path between all the villages and I would definitely recommend taking more than one day to do it. We were very ambitious and didn't really leave ourselves a lot of time to explore each little town but went back at a later time to see the towns and do some... More

We stayed in Vernazza when we visited the Cinque Terre and we loved it. We came to see the beauty and do the hikes and we were not disappointed... well only with the fact that not all trails are open, but more about that later!! We loved everything about the hike here. It was definitely challenging in parts for the... More

Riomaggiore is one of what I believe to be the two best communities to visit in Cinque Terre with Vernazza being the second. Take the Cinque Terre Train and see for yourself. The town is generally up hill unless you are leaving, then it is generally downhill. Artisan shops and restaurants abound and it is always crowded. When you are... More

The "Cinque terre" park is an amazing, beautiful area that is worth arrival especially for it! The views are so beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxing, the narrow streets are fun to walk through and the travel in train or by foot is easy. We arrived to the trip for 1 day only, and we managed to see 4 of the... More

Cinque Terre was a last minute swap in on our trip, and we loved it! The park is well maintained and the multiple trails to get to the various areas in the region are great! The wine trail above Manarola was amazingly beautiful, especially following a quick shower to cool down the area. We stayed in a scenic 2 bedroom... More

A trip to Pisa would not be complete if you don't get the train to La Spezia & then to the Cinque Terre!! They are 5 of the most beautiful hilltop villages you are likely to see all reachable by a rail pass for 1,2 or 3 days which has unlimited journeys. We got the 2 day one for 29... More

We visited in mid September for 2 nights and stayed in Levanto which is a great base to visit the Cinque Terre. Levanto has affordable accommodation and also allows cars, so we had free parking, then it was a 10 minute walk to the train station, and a short ride to the first town of Monterosso. We visited all the... More
