How to get from Bergamo airport to CInque Terre?

Hello! We are three female adults who are planning a few days trip to Cinque Terra in June. Our plan is to take the plane to Bergamo, but what then? Train? Which village in CInque Terre would be recommended? Monterosso seemed nice... Which accomodation? What about the hiking trails, do they require very good shape? Any other important things to consider while planning such a trip? All ideas and recommendations will be appreciated!

You will have to catch the Shuttle Bus from the airport to Bergamo Station from there you take a train to Milan and change there for which ever CT village you are staying at, I suggest Monterosso, being the biggest may be your best choice,

Input Bergamo to Milan Milan to Monterosso.

The low level hiking trails are not too strenuous providing you are reasonably fit ! Other than the flat Trail from Riomaggiore to Manarola they do involve climbing quite a few, several hundres relatively steep stone steps. You can however use the train or the ferry between the villages. If you have time certainly take the ferryto Portovenere which is well worth seeing. Best of luck !

It is much faster, easier and no more expensive to catch one of the frequent shuttle buses (three different lines) which run direct from the airport to Milano Centrale station.

There are direct trains from Milan to Monterosso, but a change of train is necessary for the other four villages.
