This is a bonus article to complement our special report on the Cinque Terre:
The Cinque Terre National Park, established in 1999, charges a fee for the usage of path #2 Riomaggiore-Monterosso. The objective is to collect funds necessary for the maintenance of the paths. This summer, the park will be introducing two new types of cards to replace the cards used in previous years. The basic Cinque Terre Card will now be called the Cinque Terre Trekking Card. The old Cinque Terre + Train has been renamed the Cinque Terre Train Multi-service Card.
