CINQUE TERRE - DOING IT IN ONE DAY
The most southern town and the first place in your journey is Riomaggiore. After leaving the station, head right into a long tunnel, which takes you to the center. Next, next continue to the entrance to the "Via dell`Amore". (You will need to go back to the station through the same tunnel.) Entrance to the trail is to the left of the station. You must buy a Cinque Terre Card to enter. Enjoying the beautiful scenery, you will quickly get to the second village - Manarola. Spend a while walking a bit around the city and seafront.
We would recommend you to take the train because the paths now are not as short as they were before and you wouldn`t have enough time to visit all in one day.
Next stop is Corniglia. There is a bus near the station that brings you to the center of the town (the cost is included in the Cinque Terre Card you have purchased previously). We recommend you to return to the station by foot, following the signs. And then take the train.
One more stop in little Vernazza. After a short walk, head into the last town of Monterosso, which station is located almost on the beach in a new area of the town. The old district is located approximately 300 yards from the train station (turn left at the exit from it).
That`s it. You`ve visited five wonderful villages of Cinque Terre and the `Via dell`Amore.`
