We were on a cruise in the Mediterrenean and had booked a trip from Livorno to Cinqueterra. The bus took us to Porto Venere and from there we were supposed to go by boat to Monterosso. In Porto Venere we were told the sea would...More

Beautiful views the whole way. More rigorous than I expected. I wore sneakers but hiking boots would have been better. We took the dog and it was challenging at points to get past groups going the other way. Thankfully it was not high season with...More

We are so glad we did vernazza to monterosso hike vs the other way around. As you get closer to moterosso, the walkway becomes very narrow and some of the stairs are not even properly kept so you rather not have that at the beginning...More

Tougher trail than other-worth every step. Awesome views 2 1/2 hours (we took our time) we ended with this train and headed straight into old town for food!!

Not for the faint of heart. This is a major hike with about 80 flights of stairs. Do not take it lightly. If however you are in decent shape you will love it. The views are amazing.

The whole trail is about 2hours - we are three girls and not professional hiker so I guess some people can do it within less time.

While visiting Cinque Terre, most of the paths between the cities were closed because of weather. Fortunately, the path from Monterosso to Vernazza was open. We had a group of five people who did the hike. We did not realize that the majority of the...More

Totally enjoyed the hike and it was well worth the effort. Steep in some areas but easily accessible for all. You go at your own pace and there are several spots where you can rest. A must do while in Monterrosa.

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
Are the boats / ferries that connect all the Cinque Terra towns still running in mid-November? And is this a good time to visit? Thank you.

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
