Notice

Cinque Terre are very small villages located on the cliffs therefore not easy to access and to walk. Those hamlets are set with a pedestrian main street (sometimes flat some others sloped) from which depart steep flights of steps leading to the rest of the village.

The password to enjoy properly Cinque Terre is flexibility. During the high season (April-October), the streets, the piers, the train stations, restaurants could be very crowded, that's why sometimes slight modifications could be necessary on the spot for making the day more enjoyiable. Trust your guide/driver-guide they will advise you at the best.

 

In case of rough sea the itinerary could be modified or take place entirely by car or train.
