A great number of tourists has visited this ancient land annually. Its countryside and its fresh air are the two elements that captivate the senses of the guests here.
Other towns located near tot he Cinque Terre are Levanto, which is situated north of them, and Portovenere, which is situated to the south.
These two towns are a very good alternative, if you do not manage to book an accommodation in The Cinque Terre on time.
Train is a good option, as it is considered the easiest way to get to the Cinque Terre. You can take the train from Genoa. Make sure that you take the local train called “Regionale”. You can also take this mean of transportation from other cities.
If you have enough money, the most comfortable way to travel is by plane. Have in mind that the nearest airports are the “Cristoforo Colombo” and the “Galileo Galilei”.
