My little family and I stayed in Riomaggiore for four nights. We rented a really spectacular apartment (which is owned by a sweet couple and not listed on trip advisor, though it should be!) so it was heaven to be able to cook for ourselves every night. This trail, my husband got up early every morning to run on, and... More

great trail - not too demanding but only between Monterrosso and Corniglia was open when I was there. Many people on the trail which meant that if you value quiet, and I do, you had to space out between other hikers.

The view is out of this world but get ready for the stair climbs! Vernazza and Manarola were are favorite villages. Stop by for lunch at Manarola. Great sandwiches and reasonably priced!

We stayed at Riomaggiore which is beautiful and caught the train to Vernazza for the walk to Monterosso which was the only walk open at the time we were there. Hot and hard going at times but worth every step. Would definitely recommend it but wouldn't recommend walking the reverse. Swim and beer very well earned at the end of... More

Riomaggiore is so Americanised and far too touristy. Packed with people all the time. It's just not worth it. Corniglia is much nicer - quaint and very pretty. Riomaggiore is just full of junk shops and T-Shirts. What a shame.

Was really looking forward to this trail, unfortunately its one of those places that is amazing but ruined by its own popularity. We went in late spring and had to walk in a convoy for most of the trail which meant that it lost a lot of its charm, I would recommend finding some alternative routes that are quieter and... More

Despite the fact that the staff at the TI office told us that the entire trail was CLOSED due to landslides, we were able to hike from Monterosso to Manarola. The path up from Monterosso had the most people on it and was in the best shape. I would not recommend doing any of this in really wet weather -... More

The view at the top is worth the sweat to get up there! The trail can be tough on the knees going up and down - a bit steep and slippery!

We stayed in Vernazza 3 nights and took the opportunity to hike to both Corniglia and Monterosso via trail #2. The trail was open and very hikable. South of Corniglia the trail is gated closed, presumably from the Oct 2011 floods. As everyone has commented the views are magnificent, the time was late March, and the weather was sunny and... More

We took the high trail from Manarola to Corniglia through Volastra. It was spectacular and lovely. However, it can be quote steep in places and there are narrow spots so if you get dizzy it can be an issue. My wife gets vertigo but she made it through. As of this writing the lower trail is technically closed, although we... More
