The trail starts in Manarola up the main street and branches off at a clearly marked spot before the church. It terraces around the top of the town for about 500 meters and comes to a poorly marked spot on the right that goes straight...More

It's a bit of hard yakka but worth the views. Take plenty of water and make sure you eat first! Definitely wear appropriate footwear.

Absolutely love this trail. As others have mentioned it is closed in various sections. We hiked 2 different sections of the trail. At the train station we noticed there was a map highlighting the areas on the trail that were closed due to landslide. Not...More

We walked between four of the five villages! The views are stunning and most of them are accessible for the average hiker, except for the one between Manarola and Riomaggiore.

I did the full trail (involving all 5 towns) about 7 years ago but unfortunately only the first 2 sections are open due to a land slide. However, it is still a stunning walk. I suggest starting early in the morning from the Monterosso end...More

This trail leading into Vernazzia was the easiest of the villages. We caught a boat on the way home and took the shore line tour. The trail is not for those unable to keep their balance and walk up/down steep steps up to about a...More

Trail 2 is the original trail connecting the five towns; the first two segments are still closed as of March 2017 - use the park website to find the alternate routes (trails 531, 506, 586, 587). We did the Corniglia-Vernazza section in about 45 minutes...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Heading to Riomaggiore next week with the family for a few days...reading and researching. Trying to understand the trail system - is there one path of easy to moderate difficulty from Riomaggiore to Monterossa that can be done in 3-5 hours? then perhaps train or ferry back? Any tips or recommendations much appreciated!

Yes absolutely. There is a train that takes you from town to town and it's an easy option if hiking is not. You can purchase the train tickets at any of the towns.
