“Breathtaking!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Very busy, but once you get going, the slower people really fall behind. Take lots of water with you, and don't forget your camera for some outstanding views.Last year when we were there the path was closed, make sure you check first. We were on it in 2011 in August and it was very hot and no shade in some areas. You will be ready for some vino and a good meal after such a vigorous hike!

“Nice trail hanging on the rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

You have to be quite fit and need strong legs as there are so many steps! But when you're on the top the view on the Gulf of La Spezia is amazing :)

“Very nice, but very crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We hiked a few different paths when visiting Cinque terre, and although the scenery is stunning, it is fairly crowded with tourists as well.
We found Monterosso - Levanto to be just as nice, less crowded, and its free!

“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a good 2 hour walk through vineyards with a great view of Vernazza. Some reasonably steep sections, but marked well and great view of the sunset.

“Great scenic walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

A beautiful walk up the coast. It is not physically demanding, but easy to catch the train for parts if you are tired or short on time. The views are great and each little town is very sweet
