On this page we will describe the main attractions and places of interest of the region for tourists who want to see the Cinque Terre in one day. The entire route is tagged on the map with minute details.

If you have more than one day or you have time at your disposal, we have added at the bottom of the page other places of interest that were not included in "in one day" itinerary. We would recommend you to consider them also.

We are frequently asked: how much time is needed for visiting the Cinque Terre? Well, ideally you will need three days to completely visit the Cinque Terre (walking only on the main hiking trails) and Portovenere without taking into account a vacation on the sea.


Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre

1. Riomaggiore
Riomaggiore will be a starting point of your journey. It is the first village of the Cinque Terre when coming from La Spezia. Train is the best mode of transport to reach this place.
To reach the village centre from the station, take a right turn from the exit. Then going through a long tunnel you reach a Y-junction. Left road goes towards the main street of the town, and straight - there is a descent to tunnel leading to fishermen’s wharf. Though the village is small, there are some interesting attractions; you can read about them on the page dedicated to the village itself.
