I asked you for ALL of your recommendations, and here they are below! Thanks for those of you who contributed to this Ultimate Cinque Terre Bucket List post!
You can either hike the Cinque Terre (the whole hike between the 5 towns takes about 6 hours), OR take the train between the towns.
The local trains run about 4 times an hour each way and stop in Levanto, Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore and La Spezia.
Places To See and Things To Do in Cinque Terre
mkiv6 Definitely start in one city and hike to the last. It was so great to stop in each little town and see what they had to offer.
bstudiodesigns Great choices! You will love Cinque Terre and all of your destinations, they all have unique and beautiful features!
carehage Loved Cinque Terre!
- We also went to Monterosso – the last stop on the train at Cinque Terre. If you walk into the town and go all the way to the right near the base of the rocks, that is the free beach where the normal people are, perfect swimming!!
- If you are feeling adventurous, the hike to the monastery above the town is breathtaking and oh so worth it! ENJOY!!!
Food and Spirits, need I say more!

Things To Try
cuisinebykb In Cinque Terre, there is a great boat company on the water in Riomaggiore and they’ll take you on a boat ride to all 5 villages! Also, definitely go see The David in Florence, it’s the best! (The replicas don’t count 🤣)Fellow Blogger’s Guides
