    If you are planning on walking between the villages on the Cinque Terre, then take care!!

    Some of the paths are pretty narrow, and along the edge of a cliff..... A lot of walkers carry large sticks with them to assist with climbing and helping to stop any slips and falls.

    Just ensure you have sensible walking shoes and take it easy - it is not a race….perhaps you should leave the high-heels at home ; )

    Beaches in Cinque Terre

    by Zeldap99 Written Dec 28, 2007

    The only thing you have to watch for are the private beaches. The beaches will be sectioned off, the hotels will have part of the beach reserved for just their guests so you just have to look and see which part is public.

    Cars

    I think this is what struck me most when we first reached Monterosso: after only having experienced these real small streets in Vernazza and not having seen any cars (where should they be able to drive in such a tiny village?) I was shocked to see those broad streets in Monterosso's new town, see the parking lots and have to pay attention when crossing the streets!

    Only later I found out that Monterosso as well does not allow cars in the village (or at least only those with special permission) and that is why they have those huge and ugly parking lots just outside. Fact is, though, that all of the above is true and for me that was quite disturbing!

    Cinque Terre - intense Hike

    OK the hike isn't that bad but I started it with a killer hangover and no water. There are no store until you get to the second town, or fourth town depending on which way you start from... I literally thought I was gonna die. Take water with you and you'll be ok.
