The sections of walk between Riomaggiore, Manarola and Corniglia, which were the easiest, remain closed several years after landslips made them unpassable. There is no sign of repairs having commenced.The Italian authorities take their cut from the tourists just to do the walks and it is probably about time they fixed the paths that were accessible to all. We caught... More

Wear sturdy shoes and take water. A lot of work has been done to create the trail from Corniglia to Monterosso al Mare, but it's pretty rough footing with lots of stairstep type climbing. Views are wonderful. There's a midpoint at Vernazza where you can regroup and recoup (and decide whether to go on). From Vernazza to Monterosso al Mare,... More

I agree with earlier comments. The parts of the trail that are open were a great hike but two sections are still closed with no apparent activity to fix them. Shame on the local authorities. this trail is widely publicised and people come from all over the world to hike it.

The view is incredible - most people either take a train or hike around, but the boat is the best way to see this amazing place in it's entirety - so breathtaking.

We took advice from TA to start our day with the train to Monterosso from La Spezia (where we were staying) We got on the trail at 8:20 and were expecting crowds but didn't encounter many people once we got onto the main trail. It was a good 2 hour hike or medium intensity I would say and was happy... More

Trail 2 on a hot day was hard work, but the rewards were the spectacular vistas and natural challenging trails. I was very proud of myself that, at 63, I was passing twelve year old children and finished the two hour trek. An amazing memory!

This was an amazing trail! Parts of it were closed due to landslides, but the towns that we did get to hike to were beautiful! This was not an easy trail- steep incline and decline, minimal railings, blazing sun, but the views are something you won't soon forget!

Part of the trail was closed, but we walked from Corneglia to Vernazza and from Vernazza to Monterosso. Both beautiful paths of approx 1,5 to 2 hours walk each. Bring lots of water in the summer time and good hiking shoes. Vernezza is great for lunch and Monterosso is great for swimming.
