Weather alerts in Cinque Terre are frequent during autumn and must be taken seriously, even if they involve unpleasant safety measures when on vacation and if often, luckily, the weather turns out to be much better than expected.
On 25 October 2011, in a few devastating hours, part of the Val di Vara and the villages of Vernazza and Monterosso experienced tragic hours: the villages were flooded and then submerged in mud, routes destroyed and tragically some lives torn. The signs are still visible and people still shaken.
In addition to this, the climate is changing and autumn rains can now be extremely violent. Too much for our territory.
In the event of a weather alert, ferry and private boats service is suspended, as is the Cinque Terre Card sale. Access to the paths in the Cinque Terre National Park is prohibited and we strongly advise you not to walk along any other path.
Each local administration then follows its own regulations and applies specific self-protection plans.
Weather alert in the municipality of Riomaggiore
The municipality of Riomaggiore has long adopted its regulation in the event of an alert, with related self-protection measures for the villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola and Volastra. These standards result from the study of specialized technicians who have specially drawn up these individual plans.
