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.

To walk the trails of Cinque Terre is fantastic. You walk by wine yards and olive trees. As some of the lower trails are closed there is some uphill and downhill but you get rewarded with the most amazing views. Wear good shoes ( sneakers...More

Cinque Terre is really overcrowded but stil beautiful. It is very hard to handle a lot of people behind you and try to enjoy the beautiful sea, rocks, houses and atmosphere. However it is simply magnificent.

I went there in a one day tour from Florence. Views are really nice, it is definitely a unique place. However I wouldn’t visit all the towns: they are VERY similar and very crowded by tourists. My advice: don’t take a tour, go by yourself...More

Colourful sea-side villages dotted around mountains are possibly my favourite things to look at. The combination of rocks and colour and life chills my bones. I love it. Cinque Terre is the perfect antidote for my boredom and stress, offering walks and views and seafood...More

We stayed in Monterosso and so planned to hike most of the way to Riomaggiore and get the train back. Fortunately we bought the train ticket add on as the hike was more strenuous in the sun than we had anticipated and so it was...More

We had a dreadful day thanks to the appalling ferry service. It was ridiculously hot, which fair enough, can't be helped, but I would expect at least fans and shade on all areas of ferries which are operating in such a hot climate. No such...More

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
