We visited on March 10th and had been checking the official Cinque Terre park website daily to see if the hiking trails were open yet. Sadly they were still closed; the park officer said it was due to the season and they will be opening...More

A visit to the Cinque Terre is an incredible experience. Yes, there are a lot of tourists but it was not as crazy as I had heard. Make sure to get a park pass. We purchased the two-day pass that includes your train ticket to...More

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

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

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
