Cinque Terre Guide

Technically Cinque (5) Terre is a group of 5 different towns. However, due to the small size of each town and for the purpose of this guide, we thought one consolidated guide would be more useful than 5 separate guides.

Connected by a train that generally runs about once every hour, the 5 towns all have something different to offer while still staying true to a small Italian fishing town vibe. Considering how easy it is to travel between each of the towns, you should absolutely try to see all of them. We are fans of doing, seeing, and eating different things in each town, so let this guide be a tool for you to adequately experience the entire Cinque. Generally, we take day trip from Florence to Cinque Terre, but you’re sure to have an even more lovely time if you choose to stay the night in one of the 5 seaside towns.

~Where To Eat~

·Nessun Dorma – Manarolla – Lunch

·Da Eraldo – Monterosso – Dinner

    My boyfriend and I are planning a summer trip to Tuscany and plan to do two day trips to Cinque Terre. Which two towns would you suggest visiting? We would love to get some romantic photos and we’re huge wineos! I think we’re looking for beautiful location with a bit to do and see but we don’t mind one day that’s more lazy beach typey.

    • Hey Emma! If you’re doing 2 separate day trips you absolutely have enough time to visit all 5 towns. We have visited all 5 in one day trip. Vernazza is the most gorgeous and photogenic and also has amazing gelato (Gelateria Vernazza – get the fig and ricotta), Monterosso is best for lounging on the beach and has the best food (Da Eraldo), and the other towns are all gorgeous and incredible too. Go see them all!

    Hi,
    We are going to spending 3.5 days in Cinque Terre in early May. Besides visiting the 5 cities, do you recommend taking a day and
    going to Portofino,santa Margherita Ligure,San Fruttuoso and Camogli ?

    • Hi Connie! Wow, that sounds so fun! Yes, we have been to SML and Portofino and both are great. We actually walked between SML and Portofino (5 KM each way). It takes about 40 minutes to an hour but is an awesome way to get in some exercise and enjoy the beautiful coastline. There isn’t much to do in Portofino, but it is beautiful. People also like Portovenere and La Spezia (south of Cinque).
