Great views from this walkway, definitely a must if your are staying in Monterosso. Seeing the town from this vantage point is fantastic.

This hike from Monterosso to Vernazza is the easiest hike from what I've read. Two hours is about the average time, vertical climb at the beginning but after that it is a wonderful trail along the coast and through local vineyards. The approach to Vernazza...More

TI recommended walking from Vernazza to Moterosso, not the other direction. Having now walked it, I agree. A little difficult finding the start in Vernazza, but just ask a local. Magnificent views. Quite testing in places. Start early to avoid the heat & the number...More

Take a bottle of water with you. Wear your hiking shoes or at least a pair of sneakers. It takes around 1.5 - 2hrs hike. Lots of going up and downs on very tiny roads. Definitely worth it.

The views - amazing. The trail - decent. The challenge - the hundreds of stairs you climb right away when leaving Monterosso! And just when you think it's over...there's more!! Be prepared with water - it's a workout. It took us a good two hours...More

We walked the trail in reverse and would highly recommend to anyone of average fitness or less to start in Vernazza. Take water and get an early start if you can. We walked on a sunday and it was very busy.

Beautiful hike. Start early. We were out on the trail by 8 am and there were very few people. By the time we got to Riomagione the crowds were crazy. Beautiful National Park but impossible to get info, trails were closed, but we heard later...More

Monterosso is the easiest, as the station is a flat walk to either the Old City or the New City. Both are about a 5 minute walk from the station. Manorola is also easy, as the station is in a tunnel right in the middle of... More

I traveled in July ( top summer) but I suppose they will be running in November, why not? But I think the best time to visit this place is summer or spring time . Another point, take the local train to visit the towns

We walked from Monerosso to Corniglia in early January. The rest of the path was closed for maintenance. We were not charged anything to walk and paid at the station for the train. The weather was magnificent then - hope it... More
