Cinque Terre Card, trails and more

What’s a Cinque Terre Card? As you may know, Cinque Terre is five picturesque tiny villages on the Italian west coast. They are world-famous for their stunning but steep hiking paths along the waterfront connecting the villages and shrines in the surrounding hills. 

To preserve these trails and paths, originally built by farmers to reach their terraced fields, the Cinque Terre National Park introduced the Cinque Terre Card. It’s a pass for visitors that also allows them to visit several museums and ride eco-friendly buses.

When you need to purchase the Cinque Terre Card

You need the Cinque Terre Card when taking more than four local daily trains or hiking the waterfront lower blue trail from Monterosso to CornigliaYou do not need a card if you plan to visit three villages by train, but do not walk any connecting paths.

The same applies when planning to visit the villages by ferry. Again, you do not need it if you plan to hike the upper trails connecting Levanto to Monterosso and/or those connecting the villages to their shrines and the shrines to one another.
Don’t worry about details—we’ll be more than happy to provide you with detailed information and tips once you’re here!
You can buy the Cinque Terre Card at any Cinque Terre Info Point from Levanto to La Spezia, or, to avoid queueing once here, , you can get it online
