Cinque Terre Card, trails and more
What’s Cinque Terre Card? Well, as you may know, Cinque Terre are 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 build by farmers to reach their terraced fields, the Cinque Terre National Park introduced the Cinque Terre Card. It’s a pass for visitors, also good for visiting several museums and riding the eco-friendly buses.
When you need to purchase the Cinque Terre Card
You need the Cinque Terre Card when taking more than four local trains per day or hiking the waterfront lower blue trail from Monterosso to Corniglia.
If you plan to visit three villages by train but not walk any of the connecting paths, you do not need a card.
When planning to visit the villages by ferry, same thing and 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 help you with detailed info and tips once you’re here!
You can buy the Cinque Terre Card in any Cinque Terre Info Point from Levanto to La Spezia, or, to avoid queueing once here, you can get it online. If you’re staying at the Oasi, just let us know when and for how many days you need it, and we’ll take care of everything!
