  • Attention, paying trail! Only Sea Trail still open. Other trails are all tops. We did the journey in the direction Vernazza Monterosso. Nice strong enough climb from the port in the alleys, then irregular stairs and trails on the ancient terraces of vineyards. Steep descent to Monterosso. Very frequent stairs! Come early!

  • After several years back at Cinqueterre one of most beautiful of our natural treasures and conscious Italy. When the paths for the first time you could walk free from Monterosso to Riomaggiore and the trails were well maintained and if you had to return to train the ticket cost pennies. Now to make the blue path you have to pay a daily entry badge 7.50 euro per person and the trail can be walked to Corniglia and Vernazza Monterosso is all the sudden absence of services and poor cleanliness of the trails. To reach Manarola and Riomaggiore you're forced to use the train or hike very long and challenging, otherwise you have to pay 4 euros each time you board the train. Alternatively you can pass Park + train to 16 euros per person. The whole thing is very nice. But a question arises. But the money that was collected from 2011 to date as they are used? Thousands of people every day are charged the entrance ticket and the reopening of the paths between Corniglia and Manarola and Riomaggiore you know nothing about. The beautiful way of love is not passable and nothing is known of securing jobs. It's sad to say but if this treasure had been in any other European country would not be in this condition.

  • It was the first time that I was walking on a path of hiking... paying the note should she suffer? This hike (more expensive than a train ticket) however allowed me to discover very beautiful places, it is a must.

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.
