Best hike ever

Amazing views absolutely stunning. A definite must do on the bucket list. Will definitely be back. Was nice to do in winter as trails were very quiet.

I visited solo by catching train to Monterosso..... I arrived early and looked around did not think I would walk the trail. However you start to look at the views and the trail draws you in ... late November so trail was not busy and weather perfect 👌

This was a very up and down path with lots of narrow spots, but it was absolutely gorgeous! Wear good hiking shoes and bring a water bottle and camera.

Seems like everyone coming to Cinque Terre wants to do this trail. The last two bits (Corniglia-manarola-Riomaggiore) is closed so instead of having hundreds or thousand of people spread out, they all are cramped up on this trail which in areas are too narrow to pass for two people going opposite direction. Dont get me wrong, its a lovely trail.... More

Not the easiest trail. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs. If you have small kids - it may be a challenge. But it's definitely worth it. The views opened to the traveler are spectacular.

We loved everything about the hike here. It was definitely challenging in parts for the average person but oh so worth it!! Pack some water, wear a hat, take a camera and be prepared to stop and admire the view.. stunning!!

from Corniglia's train station. It was by pure accident that I ran into this awesome location. Unfortunately, life savings day and my unplanned stop did not allow me to take the blue path to Vernazza but it's a must because there is no other comparable beauty that this magical sightseeing.

This hike was perfect for our level of physical fitness. We are not overly fit but enjoy the outdoors. It was certainly challenging. There are many, many stairs up and down and a few spots that are a bit narrow. The viewpoints are well worth the effort. The hike took us just 2 hours and we stopped along the way... More

The Cinque Terra trails are simply amazing and worth building it into your vacation. The views are breathtaking. Plan your hike and make sure you have layers of clothing, a backpack, water and snacks. You need to purchase tickets to hike the trail.

We only walked part of this path from Monterosso, but it was so incredibly beautiful, Breath-taking views, sheer cliffs, gorgeous day. Worth every minute of the walk!
