We enjoyed our hike to Vernazza although it was not supposed to be open there were plenty of people on the trail. It was a great workout with incredible views. Truly a gem.

We are regular hikers (but 60years old) and I was surprised how many real ups and downs there were. Way up, way down!!! Over and over. Really enjoyed it but harder than I imagined, hot in October even.

Great mountain side hiking through vineyards with impressive views. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that two of the trails between the five towns were closed. The overall Cinque Terre experience was outstanding.

I thought we where going for a walk around the mountains, but it's actually a hike up and over several to get to Vernazza, but worth the climb.

This was a lovely hike. Challenging, but not killer, and the views and scenery are nothing short of spectacular. Probably the nicest hike we took in the Cinque Terre.

Don't get me wrong, the path is good, and the view is beautiful. However, although we were there in October, there were way too many people. So many that, along the path, there were a "street" vendor and a group of people singing to earn...More

In mid June 2017 this was a great walk with stunning views. There are no really steep climbs and many places to take a pause, including a small cafe about two thirds along. We arrived at the path at 9 am but would have been...More

We found Monterosso to be the most lively (and flattest) of the five towns. The beaches were nice but more mica than sand. The old town is small but bustling and the promenade between the old and new town provides a lovely walkway. It is...More

Although I am not a seasoned hiker, I do enjoy going for walks and we thought that it might actually be quicker than taking the ferry back to Monterosso given the waiting time plus we would have the opportunity to burn off some extra calories...More

Monterosso is the easiest, as the station is a flat walk to either the Old City or the New City. Both are about a 5 minute walk from the station. Manorola is also easy, as the station is in a tunnel right in the middle of... More

I traveled in July ( top summer) but I suppose they will be running in November, why not? But I think the best time to visit this place is summer or spring time . Another point, take the local train to visit the towns

We walked from Monerosso to Corniglia in early January. The rest of the path was closed for maintenance. We were not charged anything to walk and paid at the station for the train. The weather was magnificent then - hope it... More
