    Hi Luke,

    It indeed does seem as if the Cinque Terre is going to put some sort of cap on it's number of visitors. At this point, they're looking to do so on an annual basis. However, this may seem impractical once implemented.

    I heartily concur with their notion of trying lessen the environmental impact to the area. It seems like this regulation is primarily aimed at cruise lines. A constant theme running through articles I've seen is that they are experiencing waves of cruise ships ( no pun intended) dropping off huge numbers passengers at one time. Putting an annual cap on the number of travelers will do little to lessen the environmental impact of a cruise liner dropping off 1,200 passengers at once.

    Even the local residents remark that it's the day trippers they're targeting.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see a different system in place before long. Perhaps one in which daily entry is restricted.

    There was a good article about this in Condo Nast Traveler. Here's the link.

    Currently, you've got nothing to worry about. According to the Cinque Terre's official site, there are no travel restrictions for 2016. In fact, the warns about unverified sources of information that spread the news of the visitors’ limitation. It surely wouldn't surprise me to hear of some unscrupulous whores selling "guaranteed entry vouchers" for a place with no entry restrictions.

    However, it might be a good idea to periodically keep an eye on the situation. Depending on the behavior of the cruise line industry, this could change. Here is the Cinque Terre's official web site.

    Happy Travels!

    As of last March. it was recently announced that the number of visitors to Cinque Terre will be limited. There are currently no plans to implement this restriction in 2016. A new procedure for entry tickets may be put in place in the future but as of now, the system has not been finalized. More info to come.
