Beautiful and well-preserved nature. Wonderful small hamlets on the steep cliffs joined by walks with breathtaking views. Doesn´t cost much considering the beauty you will see here. Definitely recommended as one of my ever favourite Italian places.

A visit to the Cinque Terre is an incredible experience. Yes, there are a lot of tourists but it was not as crazy as I had heard. Make sure to get a park pass. We purchased the two-day pass that includes your train ticket to...More

The 5 villages and surrounding area are mesmeric. It is brilliant that they've not been ruined by tourists and overly commercialised. Clearly there are lots of tourists about but that did not cause any problems when we were there and we thoroughly enjoyed wandering around....More

We visited Riomaggiore and Manarola on a day trip and both of them are worth a visit. We especially liked the view of the sunset over Manarola!

This was the highlight of our entire trip! We visited with walkabout tours (and I definitely recommend them/ taking a day trip as it can get confusing). The whole trail looks like a postcard! A must-see! The trail is a bit of a hike, so...More

While in Italy we decided to take the train to Cinque Terre and found it to be absolutely beautiful. Cinque Terre comprises five small towns (hence the name, which translates to "Five Lands") on the western coast of Italy in the region of Liguria, just...More

Yes, there is undeveloped land, but you have to work (hike) to experience it. And you have to work to avoid the crowds. The trains can be unbelievably crowded during certain times of the day. Some of the trails can get crowded too. It makes...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.
