“Unique place”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

As the name says, the national park consists of 5 villages which are individually unique. One needs a good 2 full days to explore all the 5 villages in an enjoyable tempo.

“Inconsistent rating system of hikes and trails”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We loved hiking the Cinqua Terre but found the information availableregarding the difficulty of each trail and section of the hike to be totally inconsistent. All literature emphasizes the need for hiking shoes and the difficulty of the hike for section Monterosso to Vernazza yet we found that this was the easiest section of all. The hike from Riomaggiore to Porto venere is hard work and poorly signposted. Porto venere is such a gem at the end of a long hard days hike!

“Trail with beautiful views!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We walked the amazing trail between Monterrossa and Vernazza. This trail offers a good workout with amazing views! If you are in decent shape, the path between these two towns should take about an hour to walk, even though the map of the area says it takes two hours. I recommend wearing comfortable, stable shoes with good footing. There are parts of this path that are single track and not the easiest to navigate. The reward for completing this trail is the beautiful town of Vernazza and a nice, cool swimming hole.

“Beautiful area, one not to be missed”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

We took a boat trip from Sestri Levante down the coast and visited some of the 5 towns. They were all very picturesque, some of my pictures taken from the boat are stunning. Several of the footpaths between the towns are now closed due to rockfalls, so you need to factor that into any visit.

We visited for the day taking a private tour from Florence. It was a long day but so worth it. The scenery is amazing and the villages are charming. It was my favorite day in Italy so far. There is a lot of walking but enjoyable. We took the boat between two villages and we were glad we did because the view was perfect from the water. Take the time to go. You will not regret it.
