Cinque terre is a wonderful place and in June you'll find only som foreign
as it's just the beginning of high season.
Unfortunately, Cinque Terre also means narrow strets up and down steep
hills, a lot
of flights of steps, little sized buildings and doorways. The better way to
other than on foot, is by train or boat: both of them are often
inaccessible to wheelchairs.
Sadly, here in Italy we're far from European standards of easy access for
impaired people, something's changing now and then, but you better prepare
to fold and unfold the wheelchair a lot. In any case, the most accessible
and flat towns there are Monterosso and Levanto. Plenty of accomodations
too, from private rooms to good hotels.
Hope you'll enjoy your vacation.
