Cinque Terre

Author Posts Send Reply


Ok, so who’s been and can give me some advice? Thinking of going at some point next year and doing the hike, but don’t know a great deal about it.
How do you get there? What fitness level do you need for the hikes? How long should you spend – we are thinking a long weekend? Anything else I should know?
Thanks 🙂


Hey Hannah,
I went to the Cinque Terre in September – loved it! You don’t have to be mega fit, the majority of people there had grey hair so sure you’ll be alright. Long weekend would be perfect. When I went a few of the trails were closed so I reckon 4/5 days is the best amount of time. I really loved it there. So beautiful. You can find out more about my trip on my gapyear.com blog: [url=http://www.gapyear.com/members/Vicky/blogs/92273-hiking-in-the-cinque-terre]http://www.gapyear.com/members/Vicky/blogs/92273-hiking-in-the-cinque-terre[/url]
Let me know if you have any more questions…


Long weekend should give you plenty of time. The hike from start to end can be done in one day – it’s not particularly challenging. Of course, getting there and away will take time as well, and if you want to really explore the area a bit, a few days is good.
One of my favourite places in Italy, you’ll love it.
What are you specifically looking to know?
