It was an amazing trip to Cinque Terre. The guide gave a very informative commentary on the way there and explained the programme to us very clearly. She is very experienced. We started from somewhere in Corniglia where we have to do a downhill trek. It took us approx 2 to 2.5 hours to complete the trek to the town Corniglia where we were rewarded with a sumptuous lunch. We spent some time there after lunch before proceeding to the next village by train. Although it was downhill, the path was narrow and rocky at some points. Fortunately I brought my walking aid which helped eased my sore knees. Along the way we saw the homes and garden / backyard of the people who are living there and it is amazing. Our trek mates were very helpful and cooperative in that they helped each other and waited for one another at every change of direction. As there are trains linking the villages the train and boat ride was included. As there were a few delays in the trains we got back to Florence at about 9.30pm. Fortunately we already had in mind where we wanted to have dinner after the excursion as we anticipated we would be late. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who wish to see the Cinque Terre and do a little trekking. We are very satisfied with this excursion as we had an awesome time. Thanks Viator.
