This is a hard trek, but worth it, it took us 1 hrs 50 minutes (stopped to talk to people and sightsee along the way). There are lots of steps involved. You get to meet lots of like-minded people along the way, which instigated some great camaraderie.

Not having done sufficient research this walk is more difficult than we thought. This is one of the only between town walks still available after the rock falls. Make sure that you are well prepared with decent walking shoes, water and something to eat. It is much more challenging than expected with steep sections and uneven steps. The walk takes... More

Wanting to test my stamina, I did the walk from Vernazza to Monterosso. You hope not just for the physical challenge (about 500 meters in elevation change over 1.5 hours) but for some dramatic coastal views. Unfortunately, their are only about 5 or 6 real views of the coast line. The vast majority of the hike, your view of the... More

This walking path or hike is lovely but way too crowded for me. I take the high road between villages.

Its tough walking up all of those stairs when it's 90 degrees but well worth it for the views! It's not too rugged- I wore boat shoes and was fine.

Do not stay off this trail just because you did not bring a pair of hiking boots--street shoes or sandals are just fine. Unless it has rained recently, then skip this walk. Do not attempt unless you are in good shape, and do not believe anybody who tells you they did it in less than an hour. Spectacular scenery along... More

Wow, this place was fun. Loved Vernazza and have such fond memories of stopping there and having a caprese sandwich on the jetty. It was a lovely walk, well maintained and an easy train ride back. Such beautiful scenery.

Fantastic hike !! Be prepared, take water, wear your hiking shoes, put on your suntan lotion and bring your camera.

If you are visiting the Cinque terre this hike is a must do. A bit challenging but you will not notice the time flying by. Breathtaking views of the country side and the cinque terre.

The footpath extends beyond Vernazza and includes Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Some even include Levanto to the north. I think that the two top villages are Vernazza and Manarola. Manarola is the one that you see on all the glossy brochures as it is the prettiest as far as I am concerned. If you are limited with time I would... More
