Cinque Terre is a remarkable and fun to explore. Plus, you get a heck of a lot of exercise walking up many flights of steps and inclines, which helps burn off a few of those Italian meals.

Don’t Miss:

  • Take a boat tour to see the villages from the sea, which provides the best perspective. We took a sunset tour in a semi-private boat, which we would recommend. There is a large ferry-like vessel, but it is so crowed I’m not sure how much fun it would be.
  • Take the train to get from village to village. Since we were staying in the first village of Riomaggiore, we took the train to the last village (Monterosseo) and made our way back one village at a time. There is also a coastal trail, so you may want to walk to one of the villages, then use the train to get to your next stop.
  • We did 4 out of 5 villages and although it is quite difficult to choose, we thought that Vernazza was the most photogenic.
  • Torre Aurora in Monterosseo is an amazing place for lunch or dinner offering some extraordinary views.
