Getting Around Cinque Terre: Trails (Hiking Guide)

Irrespective of the crowd that surrounds the region around the villages of the Cinque Terre, they remain astoundingly breath taking, charming, and usually very accessible to the tourists. Hiking here continues to be, the most popular on the ‘to-do’ list of visitors coming to Italy. This is also by far the only reason why so many people visit the Cinque Terre region. There exists a cliff-side trail that connects the Cinque Terre towns, allowing some beautiful views over the Ligurian Sea.

The option of train travel within these 5 villages is always there. Besides, this is the easiest way to get around. These are towns placed around the sea, so don’t stress, there are boats that can take you from one place to another. If you are looking at coming to this region in a luxury car or thinking of a nice drive – don’t even bother! It’s going to be more of a pain than fun!

Don’t ruin your holiday, just park your car at a parking spot in the town you are and get going in the public transport that connects Cinque Terre till you are done with your tour and on your way back – We strongly suggest!

Hiking around the Cinque Terre:

Hiking around (Click Here For The Complete Cinque Terre Hiking Guide) really will come to rescue if you have planned your stay at either Manarola or Riomaggiore - the two southern-most villages. This is primarily due to the trail in-between them, which can barely be counted as a hiking trail since it is paved and flat easy for strollers too!

cinque-terre-trails1For a while now, that hike path along Cinque Terre has become a National Park hence the access is slightly limited than what it used to be. One must discount the probability of even that paved path in-between Manarola and Riomaggiore being open after you are done dining in either of the villages and want to walk back to another.

To add to this, if you are further more ambitious and seeking a tougher hike from your hotel to a dinner or back, you are seriously risking the possibilities of getting stranded, since the park has closed entries to the trail-heads. So all in all, while one of the trails is easier, walking from village to village is still not a viable option at all hours. Hike during the day – It’s safer and is a great way of cherishing the surrounding too!!
