  • Excellent as breathtaking scenery with vineyards clinging to the rocks but underwhelmed by organizational level. Before leaving on foot from Riomaggiore we informed by the tourist office. Vague explanations and unnecessary. The only thing certain is that the path of love was closed so the other trail is very challenging. It had rained the day before, slippery stones and a good workout. From Riomaggiore to Manarola it takes an hour, from Manarola to Corniglia nearly three hours. It passes through the village of Volastra from where he remains enraptured by the exceptional panorama. Recommend proper footwear and plenty of water to hydrate because the trail is exposed to the South. We were there in late October, few Italians and thousands of foreigners, but the trail hardly anyone. Controversy: you gain more tourists to run around on trains or boats that keep the trails.

  • During the mini tour cultural-gastronomic between Tuscany and Liguria with my travel companion on photo-travel blogger Guido Prosper #ilviaggiatoreinstancabile, we spent a whole day to visit the Cinque Terre National Park. Studying the path and wanting to enjoy every single moment without stress, we decided to buy the Cinque Terre Card train Multi services that offers a wide range of services: second class to access fast trains and regional trafficking in Levanto/La Spezia, the WI-FI Hot Spot in the Park, using the bus service run by ATC within countries, using pay toilets , guided tours, and much more. The Card is available in all Reception Centres of the Cinque Terre National Park. We found very useful the card also because the money is used to finance for storage and retrieval of this magnificent area. Our trip starts from Levanto station where we comfortably parked the car and took the train to Riomaggiore, then to Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. The five villages or, as it was in the past "lands" part, since 1997, of the Unesco World Heritage list. Follow the natural shape of the articulated hills above, where the sea creeps into Earth, these five villages which are considered one of the most beautiful attractions of the Ligurian riviera.

  • Cinque terre is a beautiful piece of Earth, such as from an Italian picture book. It is of course not alone here, but after all the comments on TripAdvisor I imagined much worse there. It is handy that you can reach all 5 places by train. The paths along the coast are 2011 still not all back repaired after the landslide. Why this is not finished after 6 years, is an Italian mystery. It is a great pity, because one learns that only here on TripAdvisor, rather than locally, if you buy the expensive Cinque Terre card - and then many ways can not run. Open the route of Monterosso - Vernazza - Corniglia along the coast, other places only by other means over/through the vineyards is currently accessible. The coastlines are but already quite steeply up and down and so exhausting. If you then still would need it through the mountains, everyone must decide for themselves. In any case, each of the 5 places has its own charm and is worth a visit. On the routes has wonderful views as a reward for the efforts.
