About Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre -- Five Lands -- is a collection of five fishing villages overlooking the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in the Italian region of Liguria. The coastal villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso al Mare form a national park with some of the most stunning coastal hiking routes in the world, one of the paths connecting all the villages to each others. The area is also listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List for the unique landscapes and outstanding cultural value.
Cinque Terre is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy and can be conveniently reached by train, as there is a railway station in each of the villages. There is a frequent service from Genova to La Spezia, where you can change to the local train heading for the villages of Cinque Terre.
The accommodation capacity in Cinque Terre is very limited and therefore it is essential to make a booking in advance. Mostly, the quality of Cinque Terra hostels is good and prices extremely high, especially in summer and around Easter. For those traveling on a shoestring, places in La Spezia and even Genova are likely to offer cheaper beds.
All the villages are amazingly pretty, easily accessible, and intending to serve visitors but they are all unique and have a different feel. In a nutshell, Monterosso al Mare is the largest and the most touristy whereas Vernazza is often considered the most picturesque; Corniglia is the only village lacking the direct access to the sea, Manarola has best -- if rocky -- swimming facilities and Riomaggiore is hosting an ancient stone castello.

"Mar-Mar is a great place to stay in Cinque Terre. Located in the first town of Riomaggiore, it's about a three-minute walk from the train station. There is a big blue sign indicating the location of Mar-Mar. Basically you follow the tunnel from the train station, turn left at the end, and walk up the hill for one hundred meters. You'll see restaurants on your left and right, and then you'll see the Mar Mar sign. The front desk girl Amy...

Cinque Terre Travel Tips & Suggestions
I thought I had died and gone to heaven. They have beautiful unspoilt scenery. I wish I was there now.
I have been there two times and I'm going back in three weeks. It has changed me forever and I will always see the beautiful sights, sounds, smells, and sea in my mind. I dream of the time that I spent there and will forever relish the memories that I have.
— Ian "bubs" Corso, Marina Baseball
Cinque Terre is a real a paradise place to go and it has ideal combination of wandering in wild nature, swimming in sea, and sunbathing on the beach.
Been there twice and would go again in a heartbeat. Cinque Terre is especially good for those who want some physical activity and scenery too. Stayed in Riomaggiore which was less touristy than the others, but any of the 5 villages would do!
I went to Cinque Terre in 2004 on recommendation of a friend. I truly felt like I had stepped back in time. Definitely medieval, it was actually a very spiritual experience. Loved the place and will return there one day. It beat the BIG cities like Florence any day.
Cinque Terre is my favorite place in this amazing world. It has been over two years since I have been there, but I can still smell the fresh air and see the vivid images of the locales in their natural state. The food, the wine, and the view provides for the best feelings one can have. I can't wait to get back there! Not to mention the awesome and really cheap hostel options. Me and my friends practically had our own apartment for a mere 20 euro a night!
We would have made the last village but we had too much wine in Corniglia. We crawled to Vernazza with smiles on our faces. We'll be back.
— Nancy in Idaho
I've been to Italy three times and Cinque Terre was my favorite. It truly is unspoiled. The locals were nice. We hit town around dusk one day and didn't have a room. Met some nice people and they rented out a small apartment. Spent two nights. Ate well and relaxed. Going back in 05.
— Mario D.
Cinque Terre, how is it not one of the wonders of the modern world? I was travelling and stumbled across this place from a recommendation from a fellow traveller. It's absolutely breath taking. My only request, if you go, respect it, it's beautiful and needs to stay that way.
— Steve - UK
If you go to Italy, please make sure you visit Cinque Terre. We stayed in Riomaggiore and it ended up being my favorite of the towns. It seriously changed me forever.
Cinque Terre is AWESOME. The trains between the five cities stop running early, around 12 am, so you should stay in a town where the night scene suits you. The five cities are Riomaggiore, Manorola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Moneterosso. Monterosso is the biggest and has the best beach. They are all very tiny. We stayed in Riomaggiore, which we loved. If you can't find a hostel, ask around about rooms once you are there. We stayed with an old family that rented out rooms. It was very pleasant and clean and we were treated well. Don't miss the hike!
There is no place more delightful!
Is Cinque Terra the most beautiful place on earth or what. I have been there twice and love it.
I love Riomaggiore and the people I met there were great...family setting...drink wine, share food and then hit Bar Centrale for a night cap. Fun times!
— John T
I have been to the Cinque Terre two times and I cannot get enough. Hope to return next year.
