Overall, this was one of our less scenic hikes in Cinque Terre, but still beautiful. Going toward Vernazza, the view of the city at the end of the hike is iconic.

Decided to do the walk even from the harder Monterosso end but we’re rewarded with spectacular views, great scenery and a wonderful trail of ups and downs - yes it’s not easy but with plenty of stops to enjoy the view and some water it’s...More

Hike takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. Wear comfortable hiking shoes (no sandals) and bring plenty of water. Several elevations changes and a lot of uphill walking, so be prepared to bet that heart rate up.

Quite a steep trail with lots of stairs to climb. Ensure you are prepared as it may be difficult depending on your level of fitness. Water and good shoes are recommended. it is a 2.5hr hike.

Wonderful hike along the coast with fantastic views of Mediterranean coast and towns of Vernazza and Monterosso! Some parts are difficult with steep ascents but well worth the effort. Takes about an hour and a half. Highly recommend! (From Vernazza to Corniglia also spectacular!)

During our last trip, the coastal paths were closed. You must check at the Park Service office the morning of your planned hike. Small fee. Paths are pretty rugged and you should bring a good pair of hiking boots.

The best a guy selling wonderful orange juice in the middle of the way... The worst the 2050 steps up and down. Disappointing!

We had difficulty finding the trail and ascertaining whether or not it was open, but once we found it we were ready to go. Ask other tourists where it begins. There use to be two trails blue and red (blue was suppose to be easier),...More

Nice but demanding walk. Lots and lots of stairs and uphill walking. This was one of the longest of the five and more demanding than Vernazza-Corniglia, but less so that Corniglia-Manarola. The breathtaking views are definitely worth all the effort

Start from Vernazza and move towards Monterroso...you get great picture shots early in the walk. We did not complete the trail as it was getting dark and instead decided to stop mid way and enjoy some peace by ourselves listening to the sound of sea....More

Three days, more if possible. We were there for a week and it didn’t feel like enough. However some of the trails were closed due to rain, so check with your hotel before you set off.

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
