Backpacking - Cinque Terre, Spain, France, Turkey and beyond
Posted March 28th, 2013 - 10:15 am by from Ayr, Scotland (Permalink)
Hi all I've always wanted to visit Cinque Terre in Northern Italy especially in the summertime. Is anyone else thinking of exploring this little gem of Italy and/or going on to explore even more of Europe and beyond?

I was thinking of travelling to Cinque Terre as well, if time and funds allow me to. However I am planning of travelling to other parts of Europe if you are interested to meet up this summer such as greece, croatia, bulgaria ect..

Hi Sarai, my funds are going to be low and I will be CS for most of my travels. I haven't visited any of the countries you have mentioned, but all of them interest me:) especially Croatia! When are you planning on starting exploring?

If I can make it to Cinque Terre it will probably be in mid-end august.
As for Croatia, if all goes well I should be there around end of July early august, as for the rest of the journey, I am planning on starting with Greece in early July and move my way up. No specific dates yet, I am still planning and saving.

Dan and others,

Cinque Terre is an amazingg place. I went there 2 years ago in march, but unfortunately it was closed and some of the trails were close die to the water. So love to go back there sometime this year (summer-it must be).
I'm open to any dates. I will be in Europe for a while beginning with May, 2013.

Hey Yagmur, that sounds like a great trip! Do you have any dates set yet?

No dates yet, we need to go back to turkey from milan on 14th june, so the mission has to be completed by then:p but we also have very limited budget, not sure about the costs, we want to hitchhike but not sure if its possible in italy cause here people really dont know english so much,so it is hard to communicate:/ But with someone a bit experienced why not?:)

I've been dying to visit Cinque Terre, it looks absolutely gorgeouss. I'll be studying in Florence from June 2-22 and would be able to travel up there on weekends (I have Friday-Sunday off) or after my courses are over on the 22nd. Let me know what your dates are and hopefully we can get a group to meet up!
