Don’t know about a government’s responsibility for maintaining the character of its World Heritage sites, but Italy is badly failing Cinque Terre and its people by allowing unfettered access to this fragile spot to hordes of day-tripping tour groups. They pour off the trains and...More

Unfortunately Cinque Terre has been “discovered”. The best view of the villages is from the ferry. The villages are clogged with people from cruise ships, ferry, tours and hikers. Trails very busy; at times traffic jams of hikers. Views from the trails were ok but...More

I hiked from Vernazza to Monterosso. It took about 90 minutes and offered incredible views of the coast and the towns. Be prepared, because at the start in Vernazza you must climb up stairs cut into the mountain for 1/4 - 1/2 mile. If you...More

A lot of walk but it worth it.. The Ligurian Time-Machine.. Cinque Terre A dozen kilometers of rocky coastline and half a dozen of settlements — either towns or hamlets. So why do tourists from all over the world come there? Let's clear it up....More

Hiking from Vernazza to Corniglia was fairly easy. The short trail from Corniglia to Manarola is closed so the open trail is longer and included a lot of climbing but we loved the whole experience. Since we were stayng in Vernazza the crowds don't arrive...More

The images of the villages on the internet look idyllic...I suspect they were taken some years ago, if not, clearly subject to airbrushing... On the positive note, some of the views from the trails are fabulous. There is a sense of accomplishment when a trail...More
