All reviews national park train station five villages day pass hiking trails closed due gelato local train beautiful area taking the train train service avoid the crowds high season euros per person ferry boat beautiful scenery train travel
we started at riomaggiore and went with the train to all of the villages, and each one was more beautiful than the other.
there is a possibility to do a hike from one village to the other , the hikes are about 2 hours each....More
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
Buy a day pass and get access to the park, the buses and trains. About 13 euros. The trails across from riomaggiore to manarola and then to corniglia are closed. BUT take the train to manarola then the bus up the hill to Volastra and...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 did a day trip out of Florence and it was worth every $$. We arrived in the village of Manarola spent time walking around then onto the train through to Vernazza. Again plenty of time to wander then onto Monterosso al Mare where we...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

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 you come and stay here to really see this area. The night time is also better because all these tours have gone home. They are the ones who fill up the trains, boat and villages.
