  • As you can see from the other reviews there are 5 towns that are easily accessible via train. You can buy a ticket (approx 16 euro per day) and it gives you unlimited access to the walking trails and ...  more »
  • We went through the 5 villages, a binding for a hike, others by train. In July, a lot of people, but it's still nice. 5 beautiful villages, the colors are nicer still in the evening. But here, course paying pay hikes, pay transport, paid parking, toilet... If the day Pass at €16 / pers for trains, hiking and toilet is correct, the price to pay to leave the car 8 h at Levanto is 13 euros throughout the city. A small restaurant, an ice cream and adding up quickly! Otherwise, stairs and climbs of all kinds, provide water!

  • It is a place very beautiful and picturesque, as all those who wish to go know, however it is impossible not to feel a little disappointed to be features that perhaps the famous photographs that you used to see on the internet are published with excess Overdrive, the colour of the houses is not as beautiful as you think. The other points against perhaps due to summer. The heat was unbearable, and the streets were saturated. The ticket cost € 16, somewhat expensive considering that 2 of hiking paths were closed and trains saturated. In addition people often are not friendly. Yet it is a world heritage site and it is worth to be visited, is beautiful, but it is better to go without expectations and at a proper time.

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

It's hard to go wrong with accommodations in Cinque Terre, home to some of the most charming hotels and bed and breakfasts in the country. Choosing among them depends largely on what you want most from your trip. Consider spending a restful vacation on the hilltop to enjoy the famous ocean views, or plant yourself somewhere closer to the shoreline in Riomaggiore for easy access to beaches. If you expect to spend lots of time exploring side streets and local shops, opt for accommodations along one of the main streets in any of the villages. Though it can be difficult to find inexpensive lodgings here, there are some more affordable options in Manarola, the smallest of the five villages, and Monterosso. You can even stay at a hostel in the national park if you want to be close to nature.
