Cinque Terra is definitely a place to revisit. What I would like to do is hike from one village to the next seeing all five and spend as much time as I like doing it. I would also like to eat and drink my way through the villages taking time to enjoy the wines, olive oils and local seafood. Walking time between villages is under 2 hours.
As of now however some of the trails are still closed because of the mud slides 2 years ago. When I go back it will be in the fall. You can see in the pictures that there weren't any crowds anywhere. Also maybe I lucked out but the weather was excellent. It was cold in the morning in the shade and I needed a jacket. The jacket came off as the sun came out and it was very comfortable. It was a grand day.
