The first part is the worst with seemingly endless steps up out of the town. Thereafter an enjoyable walk up and down, partly shade but with stunning views throughout. Obviously, trainers or walking boots willl allow you to go faster but we were wearing sturdy sandals and apart from the odd stone and very dirty feet at the end, we... More

We hiked from Vernzza to Monterosso, as we were recommended from our hotel (Casa Cato). The reason was a heavy stair climb the oposite direction. Lots of stairs both ways, but I think we made the right choice. Absolutely doable for anyone, but wery hot. Bring water! No need for special hiking equipment or shoes. At the end of the... More

Excellent hike with amazing views! From Vernazza, we headed on to Corniglia and then took the train back to Monterosso. A perfect day in the Cinque Terre.

Unfortunately the footpath from Monterosso to Vernazza was closed in early July 2015. The train is easy to use and definitely do not miss these absolutely beautiful and charming towns. It's worth a try to email contacts at this link to plan your hike. http://www.parks.it/parco.nazionale.cinque.terre/Econtatti.php The path from Vernazza to Corniglia was open in early July 2015.

I did both the blue path & the red path between these 2 towns. I thought the Red path was 10 times better. Better views & more of them. Less people. Better landscape to walk on & of course, it was free too! I though on the blue path there were 2 good view points, possible one more, but on... More

Quite easy but you need some training (many ups). Do it early morning, avoid noon, take water and comfortable clothes and shoes.

We set out from Vernazza at 10am in the hottest July on record. I was really glad I took theTrip Advisor advice to walk Vernazza to Monterosso rather than in the other direction, as we passed many walkers from Monterosso who were really suffering from the heat and the many stairs. The walk is not for the faint-hearted but the... More

Amazing if not challenging. Bring water, a fan and comfortable shoes. If you're fit it is a must do.
