If you buy a trail pass or a combination rail and trail pass for Cinque Terre, you also get limitless bus rides on the green buses that will take you high in the hills behind each town. They make great sightseeing excursions. They go slow and the vistas are fabulous. The tourist offices (not fabulously helpful) can provide you with ideas for busing up and hiking down. The trip up from Vernazza is particularly stunning. report a problem

I agree wholeheartedly about the buses and the train tickets. We lucked into a guide who provided us written directions for our hikes and took care of all the dinner and hotel reservations, so we hiked up some mountains and down again, but when we were too tired to go back the way we came, we could zip back by train, or we could ride up to the top, and then hike down -- all sorts of variations for very little money. We went at the end of the season (late Sept.) and stayed through the beginning of the off-season (Oct.) and were delighted to discover that it was warm enough to swim. And all the hiking we did do allowed us to eat and drink as much as we wanted without gaining an ounce!
