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

What an incredibly gorgeous place!!!! There was no one place in which I wasn't fascinated!!!! Every one of the 5 towns has its charm, and because you are along the Mediterranean, it's breath-takingly beautiful! I would go back over and over! Just don't plan on...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

One of the very amazing places Italy has to offer. Sure, the train system could and should be improved, and yes it's very crowded, but it's really worth it when you see those spectacular views.

We combined our visit to Cinque Terre with a retun visit to Pisa where we stayed for two nights and the first morning drove to La Spezia, parked underneath the central train station. At the train station we bought a Day Pass (16 Euros) which...More

This was the part of Cinque Terre that I liked. One could walk along a path overlooking the sea and people-watch, or have lunch or a gelato at one of the seaside restaurants. Relaxing.

Wonderful place to visit for a holiday. You could rush through everywhere from a cruise ship but you miss the feel of the area. Stay for at least three nights and tour in a call way - organise your own schedule by boat or train...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
