This village has a natural harbor and one can see colorful boats docked there. However, on closer look, the buildings looked quite shabby with peeling paint and plaster. The day we were there, the place was packed with tourists. Not very serene at all.

There's no way around it, Cinque Terre is popular. We stayed nearby in Manarola. Of all the towns, Vernazza seemed the most crowded. Maybe it was when we visited. We hiked from Corniglia and just wanted somewhere to relax for lunch and a drink. But...More

During the day the village is flooded and you're best out on a hike, in the morning and evening the crowds have left and you can really enjoy the setting. Vernazza has a good balance between number of visitors and services, Monteresso feels more touristy...More

I was in the Cinque Terre 15 years ago and as others have noted, it has been over run with tourists. The onslaught has diminished the charm and experiences Vernazza once offered. I especially noticed how surly the townspeople have become. They obviously have had...More

We visited here two days this October while staying in Manarola. One time was not so full and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. The other day, it was so full of huge tour and cruise ship groups that it really took away from the experience....More

Vernazza is the smallest town of them all, but it also the fairest. When the hustle and bustle of the day the dies down, that’s when it really becomes charming. It has its small harbor “beach” that offers crystal clear waters for perfect for swimming...More

Hi Kate - we were there in October 2017 and everything was opened. We stayed in La Spezia and were using the train to travel between villages. Vernazza was quite busy compared to the other villages. Corniglia, in my opinion... More
