Although the hikes themselves are considered fairly easy on the legs, some may find the often steep incline and climbing, particularly between Manarola and Corniglia, to be trying, so it is recommended that you be cautious about which paths to take. Also, a few of the towns, such as Monterosso, can accommodate visitors on a larger scale, with a wider selection of modern accommodations, many with coast-side views.
This was one of the best day tours we took! Matteo, our guide, driver and coordinator, was exceptional. He was informative, caring and like a good friend to all of us. Despite the tight time frames in a couple villages, we had time to explore on our own. It was our first time to Cinque Terre but it will not be our last. The beauty of the sea, cliff villages and terraced vineyards were phenomenal. We are so glad we took this day trip - it was worth the Euro and time.
The Cinque Terre Hiking trip was amazing!!! My husband and I both agree it was the best day of our whole trip to Italy! We had gorgeous weather, awesome tour guides, and just an overall great day. We loved each village and enjoyed the hike very much. The lunch was the best meal we ate and the "surprise" at the end was great! I would highly recommend this and it was definitely worth every penny!!!
Best day of our trip to Italy. Wish we had more time to shop but the hiking, food and wine was awesome. Sandra was an awesome tour guide. Bus was clean and comfortable. If you want to get some exercise and see a beautiful part of the word, do the Cinque Terre hiking day trip!
