Is Cinque Terre worth visiting?
Re: Is Cinque Terre really worth it? It’s not worth it as a day trip. At least if you stay the night, you have morning and evening without crowds. If you found the Amalfi Coast overcrowded–where there is so much more space to escape–then you will definitely find the CT overcrowded.
