Italy Things to Do: 1,470 reviews and 2,257 photos

These five villages, whose reputation has spread far and wide, are accessible by car, something I didn't realise. When it is expressed that there is no road between them, that is not entirely correct either. It's just that there is no direct route between them and it's quicker, more relaxing and more scenic to walk. As a bonus your health benefits also!
The other option is train which makes it really easy to get to each village but, as you are in a tunnel most of the way, not a preferred scenic option.

Directions: North of La Spezia, Italy's key naval port

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
