Only 2 of the 4 legs of the Cinque Terre Main Coastal Trail are open. It's embarrassing that they continue to advertise these trails. The "standard" alternative trail between Riomaggiore to Manarola is also closed. The trails open get very crowded, probably more so because...More

We suggest using the accommodations in Vernazza as your home base. From there the trail heading south via Corniglia to Manarola were just spectacular. So was the trail heading north to Montorroso al Mare which should be undertaken early in the morning. Too many hikers...More
