The views, swimming at the different towns ,, there was nothing we didn't like, the area is paradise, the water safe and clean to swim in , the people friendly , the different towns all had their own ambience. the trail is reasonably well marked , sometimes it took us a while to find the marker when we left a...

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

We hiked on a hot day from Volastra to Corniglia, then from Corniglia to Vernazza. The hiking is rigorous for people in average shape - we saw trail runners blazing up and down the hills, but we were sweating hard! The views are unparalleled and the trails are well maintained (the easier parts of trail 2 were closed for maintenance,... More

My husband and I hiked down from where we were staying at Il Borgo di Campi about 45 minutes outside of Riomaggiore, over the high route to Manarolo, then took this route to Corniglia via the town of Volastra. Our original intent was to hike all the way to Monterosso, but after reaching Corniglia, I was wiped! It is definitely... More

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
