Great trekking

Some parts of via d'amore where closed, but the rest was open, and it offered a great experience, with some great points for taking pictures of the villages.

Do not be misled buy the "reltively easier trail". It can be pretty demanding for the ascent in the first 20-30 minutes. Make sure you have at least a litre of water.

We took the bus "UP" to Volestra and walked down to Corniglia. If you go the opposite way it all uphill the first hour!!!! Amazing views and a good option since Via Amore is still closed. Great adventure for young and old alike..

Spectacular views looking down on the rugged coast line and a good way to burn a few calories before the next grand meal. It's a world famous trail so you might as well hike it--be sure to wear appropriate hiking/trial shoes. I saw a few people wearing sandals and they were struggling. The Via dell'Amore portion of the trial between... More

We walked form Monterosso to Corniglia then took the train to Riomaggiore as the trail was closed. We then returned by Ferry to Monterosso. The walk gives you unprecedented spectacular views of the cliffs along the coast. The 5 villages are a must see with each having its unique character. However the ferry ride back gives a different perspective to... More

Cinque Terre is a most see. The sights are beautiful as you hike up the mountains. Not for the unfit (as I found out the hard way) the hikes are quite difficult and only get harder as you go along but the views and the satisfaction at the end make it all worth it. Not something for children or the... More

We were staying in Riomaggiore and took the train to Monterosso where we started the trail. We walked from Monterosso, through Vernazza and ended in Corniglia, taking the train back to Riomaggiore. We would have continued on but the rest of the trail was closed (I believe it was from flood damage). The trail itself is challenging in bits-very steep... More

The trails between Riomaggiore and Corniglia were closed but we had a delightful hike between Corniglia and Monterrosso. It's a lot of up and downs and uneven stones but it was a great hike if you are fit and dressed for it.

Walked the part from Monterosso to Vernazza in the middle of a hot day today and made it! My condition is average and I never hike (or take a long walk) so I was a little wary but thinking if it's too hard I'll turn back, I started anyway. I did wear running shoes but saw some people on flip... More
