    narrow trails

    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 ; )

    The weather is not always clear blue sky’s

    small man big wave

    This is not really a danger or a warning rather one of those things you see when you travel that could have gone very differently. In Vernazza October 2003 the weather turned bad. We had completed walking to four of the five villages and were lucky but not as lucky as the man in this photograph. He some how turned and ran and the wave that is about to break over the sea wall just missed washing him into the surf. I have no idea why he was out there or how he got out of the way.

    Don't stay near the train station!

    Vernazza

    When looking for accommodation in Vernazza I highly recommend that you try to find something as far away from the train station as possible - close to the harbour is better.

    Vernazza is only a small town and the noise from the train station is REALLY loud at times and could drive you crazy.....though that said, the trains do not run all night, but better to be safe than sorry.

    The Cinque Terre paths

    Cinque Terre path

    Don't underestimate the parts of the Cinque Terre paths which lead from Corniglia to Vernazza and from Vernazza to Monterosso. These natural paths are really small and stony, whereas the other paths are paved. Parts of the paths are very steep and physically demanding. So just make sure to bring proper hiking shoes.
