I just love this amazing place with all these colorful buildings. If you haven't been there, this is in my opinion a place you should see and feel in your lifetime.
My advice: Try to get there in spring or autumn to avoid a bulk of tourists and if you decided to walk along the high coast of Cinque Terre (what you really should do!) the temperatures are maybe not that high as if you would be there in summer.
You have to get there by train or by foot, if you want to hike from city to city in the Cinque Terre, because there are no cars allowed.
My advice: Leave your car in Levanto (north of the Cinque Terre - I marked the parking place on the map where I left my car) and get the train to Monterosso (attention: you should look for departures on the web because sometimes they only depart just once every hour). That's the first beautiful town you should see and start your trip. You can walk along the high coast to the other places and it's really worth it, but you have to be sporty.
