So worth it!
Sep 2021
When doing research into this hike, we saw several reviews/recommendations to start at Monterosso and hike to Corniglia (via Vernazza). Due to a rainfall the day before, the Vernazza to Corniglia section was closed and they hadn't opened the Monterosso to Vernazza section when we wanted to start. We took the train to Vernazza and by luck, the trail had just opened from there to Monterosso so we hiked in that direction. THANK GOD, because I can't imagine starting at Monterosso and climbing that one steep section!! It was much easier from the other direction.
The trail is incredibly beautiful, and the views were stunning. I don't know how many times we looked at each other with huge smiles on our faces, exclaiming "This is incredible. A-wow-a!"

Good excercise and great views
Sep 2021 • Couples
Well there’s a steep climb headed towards Verrnaza when you pass Porto Roca in Monterossa. After that it evens out and becomes an easy walk. Albeit, if you have walking sticks, bring them and hiking shoes or trainers at least. It’s best to head out in the morning to avoid the strongest sun as well. You can enjoy lovely vistas and good excercise and you’ll need to get the train package if you want to see all 5 towns as the walks either side of Campiglia (sp?) are closed due to trail damage. Worth the trip

Great tough hike
Sep 2021 • Solo
Tough steep straight up hike to the souvire. I highly recommend hiking boots or trail runners as there were many spots where running sneakers or less would have been a problem. This is definitely rated HARD and you’ll need good cardio to get to the top in less then 1.5 hours. Many people were stopping and turning around. I’ve hiked many Colorado 14’rs etc and I was tired getting to the top. Great views along the way.

Challenging walk
Sep 2021 • Couples
Not an easy trail. Make sure you bring water and good shoes. 90 minute walk for 3,5 km. Steep up and down, great views. You can buy the permit on the trail, no need to buy it upfront at the trainstation if there are queues.

Not a foot path...
Jul 2021
This is not a footpath but a proper moderate hiking trail with many steps and climbs. Not for the unfit. It was beautiful and an absolute must for those who are capable.

Beautiful self guided tour
Jul 2021
Great exercise while seeing views of vineyards, flora, ocean scenes, town of Vernazzo, and chatting with other tourists as we were hiking this trail. Took us 2.5 hours because it was VERY hot that day. Bring lots of water.

Good hike
Sep 2020
We set off about 7.30am, nice weather, it is a steep climb at the start up through the terraced vineyards. Once you get to the top it levels off a bit but there are still a few ups and downs before the nice downhill section into Vernazza.
I measured the route at 2.37 miles (3.8kms) and it took us 2 hours.
Best tip, you dont have to pay if you set off before the pay kiosk opens at 9.00am, I think.

Beautiful but...
Sep 2020 • Couples
Fantastic trail but be aware that the hike is more difficult than presented on the official website : 3,5 kms, 1h30 mins... I might be mistaken but it seems to be longer than 3.5 kms... Well anyway the problem is that some parts are very steep and many people are clearly not physically prepared and well equipped for the hike.

Make sure you have good shoes and that you are fit enough before you start the trail, otherwise you'll suffer!!!!

Disappointing
Aug 2020 • Couples
€7.20 to walk on a path way for an hour is a goddamn ripoff. You shouldn’t need to pay to walk on a pathway and €7.20 is a bit extreme €2 is enough and it doesn't warn you anywhere on the internet or tourist information its just disgusting and disappointing. I was looking forward to a good hike that day and i ended up just going in the sea and just walking around monterosso and there was not much to do in monterosso.
