Cinque Terra

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 3 day stay in the Cinque Terra in October and looking to get some current opinions on which town to stay in. We were thinking Vernazza just because it is centrally located and we could spend a day exploring in each direction from there but now are thinking possibly Monarola?? We keep vacillating... Would appreciate any opinions on which village and the lodging there. Not high end hotel travelers. Prefer a more authentic setting but with private bathrooms.
Also, We are hoping to hike the trail between all the villages. Have been reading that the western most portion of this trail is quite treacherous. Any comments on that as well??

Oh yes, we are 60 but we think, fairly young, capable 60 year olds :-))

Appreciate any input we can get. Thanks a bunch.
