Cinque Terre Travel Guide
Primo Piatto: Great spot for takeaway pasta centrally located on the main road! We got 3 orders of takeaway pasta for 21€, super affordable.
Dau Cila: Located by the Riomaggiore harbor and has the most beautiful views! Reservations are definitely recommended and if you want an ocean view you will pick from 7pm or 9pm.
A Pie de Ma: This restaurant and wine bar is located by the train station overlooking the water. They have great local wines and small plates in a casual atmostphere.
Transportation between villages: You can take a private taxi or ferry, but the fastest and easiest way is to take the train! The train is located in the center of each village and hugs the coastline.
If you are a hiker there are trails that go along the coast, but they are long walks.
You can buy tickets for specific legs (typically 4euros each way) or you can buy a 3 day unlimited ticket for 41euros.
KEEP YOUR TICKET and validate it in the little green machines before you take the train. If you travel without a ticket you can get a 50€ fine.
For tickets download the train Italian app or buy at the ticket office. You can find more info HERE
