I did a day trip out of Florence and it was worth every $$. We arrived in the village of Manarola spent time walking around then onto the train through to Vernazza. Again plenty of time to wander then onto Monterosso al Mare where we...More
I visited when it was extremely hot so I didn’t have the chance to enjoy it as I wanted. But it was really impressive. The water is so crystal clear you have no words to describe it. Crowded as expected.
To walk the trails of Cinque Terre is fantastic. You walk by wine yards and olive trees. As some of the lower trails are closed there is some uphill and downhill but you get rewarded with the most amazing views. Wear good shoes ( sneakers...More
I bought entrance ticket to national park Cinque terre in La Spezia train station EUR 16,00 and caught the train for the villages. I can’t describe vividly enough the crowd which overflow these villages. The only negative thing about this visit is mass tourism but...More
Cinque Terre is really overcrowded but stil beautiful. It is very hard to handle a lot of people behind you and try to enjoy the beautiful sea, rocks, houses and atmosphere. However it is simply magnificent.
I went there in a one day tour from Florence. Views are really nice, it is definitely a unique place. However I wouldn’t visit all the towns: they are VERY similar and very crowded by tourists. My advice: don’t take a tour, go by yourself...More
Colourful sea-side villages dotted around mountains are possibly my favourite things to look at. The combination of rocks and colour and life chills my bones. I love it. Cinque Terre is the perfect antidote for my boredom and stress, offering walks and views and seafood...More
We stayed in Monterosso and so planned to hike most of the way to Riomaggiore and get the train back. Fortunately we bought the train ticket add on as the hike was more strenuous in the sun than we had anticipated and so it was...More
We had a dreadful day thanks to the appalling ferry service. It was ridiculously hot, which fair enough, can't be helped, but I would expect at least fans and shade on all areas of ferries which are operating in such a hot climate. No such...More
We have been to CT 7 times. It never gets old or boring. Amazing how the villages developed and survived. Hopefully the special feeling of the place is maintained. Hard to imagine how it’s possible with the numbers of people who visit each year. Each...More

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 you come and stay here to really see this area. The night time is also better because all these tours have gone home. They are the ones who fill up the trains, boat and villages.
