Cinque Terre

Jump to last reply

We have a 19 day trip scheduled leaving California on September 23. We are landing in Genoa, renting a car and heading to Corsica by ferry from Livorno. We are planning on visiting the Cinque Terre area either on the way to or the way from Corsica.

We are in our early 70's but do not do stairs or hills. We realize that the towns in Cinque Terre are not on flat ground. We have looked at taking the train but it looks like the train stations are all near sea level so it is a vertical hike to the towns. Is there transportation from the train stations up to the towns? Or would it be better to take a bus between the towns?

Also how many of the towns is it realistic to visit in a 6 hour time frame?

Any other suggestions on visiting Cinque Terre will be appreciated.
