Fantastic trek

Loved the views on the way and experiences in the 2 villages. Lots of holiday makers walking too. Bring plenty of water to hydrate yourself.

For some reason I thought this would be a not so strenuous walk. However, going from Monterosso, you will ascend for quite some time. The path is poorly preserved and some areas are seriously dangerous. As I walked I wondered for how long more this path will be open before they decide to close it due to safety concerns. The...

The views into Vernazza were amazing! It was a rather tough walk with hundreds of steps to climb and in the heat of Italy can be difficult. We are all quite fit and found it somewhat difficult. All worth it in the end though for the views! Be sure to take lots of water, leave early in the morning and... More

We went with our two kids, ages 9 and 12, and it was by far the most intense hiking we did all summer. After reading the reviews, the family was prepared for it with proper footwear (shoes are recommended), except for me who had traveled with only my TEVA flip flops. Luckily, they had good traction and cushion. A moderate... More

On the advice of a friend, we left very early in the morning (around 6:30) to hike this path to Vernazza and it was a great decision ! We encountered close to nobody on the trail, hiked under a very enjoyable temperature (Very nice when climbing the steps) ! Enjoyed the views of Monterosso from the Vineyards on top of... More

A stunning hike along the coast. It is strenuous and very rugged. You do need to buy a national parks ticket, and bring plenty of water. The vistas and the fellow hikers that meet along the way are well worth the effort. Can't wait to return.

My daughter and I only walked about 20 minutes and turned around before we had to pay. It was strenuous, steep, and not for the faint of heart. The walkways are rocky and of course very old. My son continued on to Vernazza. It took him the published 1-1/2 hours to complete. He thoroughly enjoyed it - and took the... More

The views are spectacular and the walk very pleasant. It took us 2 hours, however we were overtaken by lots of younger people! It costs €7.50 per person for a pass into national park, which you pay on the trail. Make sure you take a bottle of water with you.

We hiked the upper trail from Monterosso al Mare to Vernazza today. We had intended to do the lower trail, only 143 meters above sea level and would have only taken 1.5 hrs. Instead, we accidentally hiked the upper trail! It took us almost 500m above sea level and 12 km later, on uneven terrain and poorly maintained trails, we... More
