Don't visit all 5 villages in one day if you want to enjoy each one !

Monterosso al Mare is not worth visiting. It is not picturesque or interesting in any way. You won't miss anything if you don' go to Corniglia as well, unless you go hiking.
The bus that takes you to Corniglia is very small and without air conditioning . It's extremly hot inside and I had problems breathing.

Go to Porto Venere and Lerici, which are beautiful places, less crowded.

Great trails, sometimes challenging
Jun 2021 • Couples
We did the trails from Corniglia to Vernazza and from there to Monterosso (Al Mare). Later we did the trail from Corniglia to Manarola. Both routes were absolutely great: beautiful nature, well marked routes, not too crowdy...
The first hike was sometimes a bit challenging, but in general doable for someone who has an average physique.
The hike from Corniglia to Manarola was hard in the beginning (the ascent to the mountain trail is quite steep, and the path can be a bit slippery) but when this part is over the trail is pretty easy. The views here were stunning: vineyards, mountains, top views on Corniglia and Manarola... Would recommend!

Monterosso to Vernazza
Sep 2020
We set off about 7.00am, nice weather, it is a steep climb at the start up through the terraced vineyards. Once you get to the top it levels off a bit but there are still a few ups and downs before the nice downhill section into Vernazza.
I measured the route at 2.37 miles (3.8kms) and it took us 2 hours.
Best tip, you dont have to pay if you set off before the pay kiosk opens at 9.00am, I think.

Stunning walk
Aug 2020
On a recent family trip to Pisa and Tuscany this was always on our list of things to do. Following a short train ride from Pisa to La Spezia you catch a regional train which connects the 5 villages and Levanto. You can walk between any of the 5 with the shortest between Manarola and Riomaggiore.

We opted for the walk between Monterosso and Vernazza which is a challenging climb in the Tuscan sunshine at midday but well worth the effort as you climb through forest and vineyards and catch stunning views of the coastline.

The best views I’ve ever seen!
Oct 2019 • Friends
Me and my friend did this whilst visiting Italy and it’s easy to say it’s the best hike we have ever done!
The hike started off with never ending steps and was gruelling on the legs but it soon gets relatively flat but be sure to take care!
The views are nothing short of spectacular and the 5 Coastal Towns are all beautiful in their own individual way!
Proper foot-ware is required, we saw people in flip flops ( god knows how there feet coped by the end)
Make sure you go early enough to really appreciate the beauty of the views! It’s took us about 7 hours at a leisurely pace, stopping often to take photos!
We were lucky with the weather to! It was a beautiful day but not unbearably hot!
Do make sure you take plenty of water!
This walk is fine for novice walkers, no real technical ability required and the route is very easy to follow, just a reasonable level of fitness but you can always get the train to the next stop at one of the towns if you need to!
This really is a ‘must do’ if you enjoy walking and are in the area! Plan properly as it is a long walk (all day) but it is easily one of the best things I have ever done!

TIP: Watch out for closed routes.
Aug 2020 • Solo
The collection of trails around Cinque Terre make for some great walking. However, it isn't always clear on the ground which paths are open.

The picture attached to this review shows:
- which paths are closed (marked with black crosses)
- your alternate routes between Corniglia - Manarola - Riomaggiore.

Worth being aware of before you set off!!!

Stunning views, horrible hike
Jul 2020
We were looking forward to the hike but left very disappointed. The coastal trails form Riomaggiore to Manarola and Corniglia were closed and we had to use the mountain routes. The one from Manarola direction Corniglia via Volastra has to be one of the worst hikes I have done in my life. Felt 4000 stairs upwards to Volastra, then a couple of km leveled through the wine yards with stunning views, but then downhill on rocks. Not a very enjoyable hike. The 36 degrees didn't add to the enjoyment.

Beautifull places to visit!
Aug 2019 • Family
They are faboulous. You must visit all the 5 small cities of Cinque Terre. There you have some walking trails between them, or you can take the train for hop-on/hop off 1 day. It worth all the effort to go there.

Beautiful
May 2019
These trail are fabulous. They're not a walk in the park, there are some quite tricky parts and some very steep hills but they are beautiful, challenging and every half a mile is different. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this area, Some of the trails weren't open when we visited and there was no indication when or if they would re-open, I hope the do because one day I'd like to go back and see some more.
