Cinque Terre consists five villages and I found it very difficult to say which is better since I have been to all five villages. The Riomaggiore has its own charm, the scenic views are just one of the many the Cinque Tarre got to offer....More

The famous Trail of love (Via Dell'amore) joined the Rio Maggiore and Manarola, which led a life so isolated from each other for centuries, that even the phonetics of the Italian language in these villages were different. Hard to believe, but this trail appeared only...More

The main Cinque Terre coastal trail is only partly open, but the parts that you're allowed to hike are gorgeous.

What a beautiful way to see the area. All though the hike was a little hard it was well worth the effort.

When you book a trip in advance, there is no way to know what the weather will be, and thus if the trail will be open. All trails between all villages were closed the entire time we were there. The weather was beautiful, but they...More

Many of the trails between villages are currently closed, this one between Monterosso and Vernazza is open and one of the more challenging. First 1km or so is uphill via steep series of steps, moderate level of fitness required. Trek through farms, vineyards and dry...More

Yes absolutely. There is a train that takes you from town to town and it's an easy option if hiking is not. You can purchase the train tickets at any of the towns.
