Hiked the trails and the views were amazing. Some parts of the hike were a bit challenging but so worth it! Gorgeous place to see!

The hike from Monterosso to Vernazza was challenging (more than we expected) but so worth it for the amazing views! Bring water and wear good shoes. Be ready for narrow paths and lots of stairs. Lunch in Vernazza was an outstanding reward for completing the...More

If you’re looking for quaint, colourful coastal villages where you can take a leisurely stroll, drink in the spectacular scenery, stop at a quiet little cafe, you’ll be hard pressed to find it here in season, or in the shoulder seasons. The trains disgorge tourists...More

We recently were fortunate enough to visit Cinque Terre which is comprised of five seaside towns along the Italian Riviera in the Liguria region. Unfortunately, we were only able to visit two of the towns, Riomaggiore and Vernazza. After a long and winding drive through...More

The Cinque Terre is beautiful, but in mid-September the crowds were unbearable. Around 10 am busloads of tourists start unloading. Even though it was just the two of us, it was difficult to make our way through the hoards. Shops were filled with cheap touristy...More

I just returned from 5 days in the park. The weather in early September was still very warm for hiking between the towns and among the vineyards/agricultural areas. Except for a brief morning of rain, the weather was sunny and pleasant. Part of the trail...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.

best advice I can say based off of what I remember is to park at the station at La Spezia(where you buy the Cinque Terre train tickets). I dont know what the cost is, but the train ride between the five towns is short from... 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
