Beautiful view

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.

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.

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.

We were based in Levanto and took the train to Monterosso (4 euro each) where we bought a one day trail pass (7 euro each) and then walked to Vernazza for beers and lunch. After lunch we used the trail pass to access the walk to Corniglia where we had another beer and caught the train back to Levanto (4... More

After hiking from Monterosso to Vernazza, we continued on the trail to Corneglia. The hiking is quite strenuous, but if don't push it, go at a comfortable pace, it's not hard. We found that this part of the trail was less crowded, and therefore the overall experience was more enjoyable for us. As other reviewers have noted, when we arrived... More

So plan ahead if you do want to walk all the five towns. You will probably have to go into the mountains since the easier ones are closed.
