A great hike for about an hour between two beautiful places of cinque Terre. It look very difficult when you come from Monteroso but after you get to the top it's a pleasant walk.

We did this walk just after there had been a few days of rain. It was lucky we had the right shoes as some sections were very slippery. It starts with about a half hour of climbing stairs and then pretty much flattens out. It's not very well signed so we ended up getting lost for a bit so just... More

After some research, I saw that this was recommended as the most beautiful and unique hike. It definitely was! It could not be more convenient either as an entrance to the trail started right next to the apartment we were staying in. It is not that difficult if you are in average physical shape. Anyone who is perhaps elderly, younger... More

I swore I read somewhere online that it was only going to take 40min. But it took us (bunch of 30+yr olds who spend the whole day working in front of computers) close to 3 hours with the ladies "appropriately dressed" for such hike in dresses, wearing flats and us all over ate and drank in Monterosso... Still the view... More

We drove into La Spezia from Lucca at 9:30am and found a nice, comfortable underground carpark right outside La Spezia Central railway station which was an unexpected pleasure (it didn’t show on google maps). We walked onto the first platform, turned right and found a very helpful, English speaking woman in the information office who sold the four of us... More

This was my fifth visit to the Cinque Terre, not much to do here but hike the trails, and relax in between hikes. This hike is the most challenging out of the four trails between the towns, lots of big, steep steps, and places you can take a bad fall if not paying attention. I suggest going first thing in...

What a great hike! It is hard work but worth it all. In either direction, you are climbing out of town at sea level to gain quite a bit of altitude. Bring your water and take your time. We saw a few Asian visitors wearing heals! I couldn't imagine tackling all of those steps in such high fashion and I... More

This was a challenging but very rewarding walk to do. The views are spectacular. We underestimated how hard the walk was, so didn't bring a knee bandage or walking stick. But so glad we persisted. I put some photos that you can find thru my Facebook page if you are interested
