We started from Riomaggiore as our first town. The coastal trail was closed due to land slides and damage to the bridges. We took the mountain trail- which had signs that said it was closed-but was still accessible. Took us almost 45 minutes to complete. Bring plenty of water and wear comfortable shoes. Steps are steep.

There are two trails -- this the higher one up the cliffs. And then the coastal one below You may have to take this trail because the coastal trail is often closed. We've done both -- trail 2 this time -- and you won't be disappointed. They're just different. Here the views are higher and more spectacular of the multicolored... More

We hiked this trail because the coastal trail was closed. It is a bit steep and because we visited in July it was hot and humid. Bring water and don't rush- enjoy the views and the experience of the hike. We did riomaggiorne to Manarola and also Monterosso to Vernazza. There were trek card checks on the Vernazza hike but...

This is a spectacular trail which provides a good range of sights including: historic buildings, vineyards, traditional housing, ocean and coastal scenery, great eateries, variety of track types and lots of different vegetation. It can be quite tough going in places, especially the inland trek north from Riomaggiore, as the coastal track was closed due to damage. We completed it... More

This is the most difficult of the walking tracks with 30 points. Worth the walk but must have good walking shoes. Scenery along the track is beautiful but good level of fitness is required

We had decided to walk the first leg via dell'amore. However, once we completed easily we decided to continue and do the next four. It was fantastic, the views oncredible, but take water.....and ensure you decide where to finish and that you can catch the boat out. We did not prepare at all was a spur of moment decision to...

We took this trail because the coastal trail was closed by a landslide. It is a trail for mountain goats. Straight up and straight down. But the views were remarkable.

Many hikes were closed and this was the only one opened at the time. The woman at the train recommended this direction for us and she was right. The climb up was rocky but not horrible and the way down (down is more challenging for me) was mostly stairs - lots of stairs. The views were amazing, it was a... More

A little steep going down to Manarola but well worth it! I only slipped once and fell softly, would do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful views, disappointed all the trails weren't open. Need to be in somewhat good shape, lots of ups and downs.
