    Visit the Cinque Terre by boat. One company (monopoly?) one staff little or no kind considered passenger and livestock without consideration, schedules and stops which do not respect the program. In short, with the heat and the crowd that little logically expect in August, an experience not top. The villages of the five lands are certainly nice to see but the shopping and more particularly restaurateurs seem to not eager to take care of customers presenting themselves at the entrance of their institutions (this is to the 4 th servers have daignés interested in our presence and offer us a table...

    These 5 small villages perched on the cliffs are beautiful and very original. Do not expect to visit them in car but prefer if you can walk on foot. We made them train with the map five lands, it must be said that the train stops almost at the center of most of the villages (a train all the 1 / 2 hours). On the other hand, there are a lot of tourists in the summer, even train the human tide is impressive and even worthy of the Paris metro... Wear good walking shoes, a village is located high!

    These 5 small villages perched on the cliffs are beautiful. We made them train with the map five lands, boating and hiking to get different points of view. The train is the way to travel the easier (a train all the 1 / 2 hours). You can lunch on the go easily in each village. On the other hand there are a lot of tourists in the summer. Do not expect to visit them in the car!

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.
