Both the footpath and hiking trail are closed between Riomaggiore and Manarola. The only alternative is a 3 hour hike, which is too much in this heat with children. We will need to take the train to see Manarola. Very disappointing.

I stayed in the town of La Spezia which is just a short train ride from Riomaggiore. To date it is one of the most scenic places I've been to. These 5 little towns all have something special. Be sure to bathe in the "hidden...More

This walk takes effort but was so worth it, it’s the second time we have done it and still just as good as the first.

It was a little hard for me to find the trail head but since I was intent on walking Btwn all 5 of the villages I made the effort. Glad I did. Has its own personality as each of the other legs and villages do.

If you are close to Cinque Terre, like if you are staying in Pisa, you should see Riomaggiore. While visiting Riomaggiore, you should take a walk to Manarola. You will hike near the mountain, above the sea. The view is amazing.

Definitely only stay in one town. They are all reached easily by frequent trains. I recently stayed in Monterosso al Mare. The reason I choose it is because as the biggest town it has the most amenities that I like. More... More
