Cinque Terre

Liguria’s Picturesque Coast.

Liguria’s coastline is one of the most beautiful walking areas in Italy. Multi-coloured houses clinging on to steep slopes, small squares with colourful boats on the sea, winding little alleyways and paths with stairs. Above the holiday resorts along the sea you find unspoilt and primeval landscapes with cute little mountain villages, olive groves, vineyards and winding mule trails. Hence it comes as no surprise that Cinque Terre is considered one of the most popular regions for walking in Europe: Nowhere else along the Italian mainland coast did the landscape and villages remain so well preserved. There is an extensive network of mule trails – today used as walking paths – leading you through exceptional scenery.

Well organised. Lovely hotels. good walking
It was great having accommodation by the sea. Most of the walks overlooked the sea which was also super. Lots of climbing, steps and scrambles. Directions mostly v good.

Toller Wanderurlaub in Ligurien
Es war eine traumhafte Wanderreise! Die Wanderrouten waren sehr gut beschrieben, auch die Beschilderung vor Ort sehr gut. Tolle Restauranttips im Wanderführer von eurohike. Die Hotels sehr nett, teilweise etwas laut (Camogli - direkt an einer sehr belebten Straße), aber das kleine Hotel sehr hübsch und persönlich. Gepäcktransport hat super geklappt. Wir werden sicherlich noch öfter bei eurohike buchen.

Wunderschön
Landschaft einmalig, Unterkünfte sehr gut: Sauber und sehr gastfreundlich, Strecken sehr schön aber auch anstrengend und oft nur für trittfeste Wanderer. Cinque Terre selbst in Osterferien sehr stark besucht.

Wanderparadies
Die Reise war noch viel schöner als ich es mir erwartet habe. Die Mischung aus der Einsamkeit in den Bergen mit den lebendigen Dörfern ist einmalig. Sehr gut auch für alleine reisende Frauen geeignet. Ich habe mich immer sehr sicher gefühlt, selbst in der Dunkelheit am Meer. Die wunderschöne Landschaft, die Ausblicke aufs Meer, haben manchmal wie ein Traum gewirkt, da soviel Schönheit auf einmal schwer zu begreifen war. Bergwandererfahrung, vor allem Trittsicherheit erforderlich, um auch die anstrengenden Teile der Wanderungen genießen zu können. Die Wanderwege sind sehr gut gekennzeichnet - was die Orientierung einfach machte. Hätte das Paradies einen Namen, wäre einer Cinque Terre.

Einzigartiges Erlebnis
Traumhafte Landschaft, schöne Wanderungen mit sehenswerten Ortschaften. Sämtliche Wanderungen sind sehr gut markiert, man braucht nur den Cinque Terre Küstenwanderweg folgen (ab Levanto) - Markierung durchgehend ROT / WEISS.
