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.
