Trek Cinque Terre

Dramatically perched atop cliff edges or nestled between them, with starburst-colored homes stacked one on top of the other, the five villages that make up Cinque Terre just beg to be explored on foot (driving actually isn't permitted inside the villages). Each of the villages -- Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore -- is crisscrossed by well-trodden hiking trails that wind through flowering fields, past medieval churches and alongside fragrant vineyards. Passes to walk the trails between the villages must be purchased for a small fee. When your feet get tired, hop on a local train or ferry to get to the next village.

Whether you want to hike the entire 11-mile distance between Cinque Terre's villages or just do a segment here and there, your choices are endless. From Viator day trips that depart from Milan or Florence to an immersive five-day Cinque Terre walking tour from Girosole Walking Tours, you can choose to do as little or as much as you want.

Cinque Terre Trip Reviews

Northern Italy Road Trip Part II by Jim and Donna C.
 Our next stopping point was Manarola. This was a larger town and not as pretty or easy to get around as Vernazza. What we wanted to do, however, was to walk the cliff side from Manarola to the town of Riomaggiore. This walk is called Via Dell Amore (The Lover's Walk).    Read more!
