Self-Guided Walking in the Cinque Terre and Portofino

About sixty miles east of Genoa lies a corner of the Liguria region with a remarkably well-preserved landscape steeped in tradition. 'Cinque Terre' means five lands; villages which are nestled high on cliffs or along deep inaccessible coves, with colourful houses facing the seafront. Each village offers its own olive oils, anchovies and Sciacchetrà liqueur (known as the 'Elixir of the Gods'). By day, you discover the beautiful peninsulas of Portofino and Sestri Levante using well-marked walking trails; in the evening enjoy the sunsets over the Mediterranean.

Reviews

Title : Self guided walking tour in italy
Summary : The self guided maps were easy to follow. The hidden costs of park passes and transportation should be explained better in literature. The B&B was close to train and water, clean and friendly staff. We had a great week. It was a wonderful week of hiking in Italy. The dinner voucher was the only disappointment.

Question : What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Answer : Sharing the walk with my daughter. Challenging terrain to traverse which made every view more beautiful. We were blessed with dry, sunny weather
Question : What did you think of your group leader?
Answer : Self guided - n/a
Question : Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Answer : The costs of trains/buses/boat plus cost of park passes should be better explained and better understood by traveller. These costs were considerable every day and added up for the week. Do not accept dinner voucher substitution - huge disappointment !
Question : Is there anything else you would like to add?
Answer : I was very disappointed with the last minute dinner substitution. the dinner venue changed a day before I left. The restaurant was very disappointing. There were only exodus diners present. The first 2 nights it was a set menu with only seafood items. The quality of the food was poor. We were starving after a full day of hiking and could barely eat what was presented. On the last night, we were given an actual menu. We thought this would be better. It was marginally better but still disappointing. We actually went to the restaurant that was on the original dinner voucher. The food here was excellent and lots of other diners! We would have been thrilled to enjoy 3 pre-paid dinners at this restaurant. I would like to be compensated for this last minute sub- par change. I believe the dinner charge was 20 Euros each. I also need reimbursement for downloading the app. I did not have the code to enter and had to pay for download.

Title : excellent but more strenious than expected
Summary : instructions for self guided walking tour were, on the whole, clear and detailed. Walks were a bit more challanging than I had expected but doable. Accomodation was excellent, close to necessary train station and very good restaurants. Agreat base for daily walks.

Question : What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Answer : Sense of achievement at the end of each day, having completed whole of day's activities without major hitches
Question : What did you think of your group leader?
Answer : N/A - an anonymus deliverer of detailed instructions and maps. A brief introductory meeting would have been appreciated just to set the scene.
Question : Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Answer : If you are up for a challenge and opportunity to experience magnificent scenery, go for it
