Monterosso on a beatiful spring day
Cinque Terre are one my favorite places to go walking. They not only give you a workout, but also a scenic field day for your eyes. It can take 5 or more hours to walk the Cinque Terre from start to finish. I prefer to walk them in spring or fall, when the weather is not unbearable and there are not tourists swarming about. The summer is when I throw down a beach towel and grab my snorkling gear because the water is great - especially in Monterosso.
