  • This is a great trail. We did it the "hard way" apparently from Monterosso to Vernazza. It was warm in late May so make sure you have enough water with you. The climb initially is hard with many...

  • Beautiful hike with amazing views of both towns and over the sea. The hike from Vernazza to Monterosso seemed easier, with a more gradual rise out of Vernazza (though still a good workout). This...

  • It was taught due to the temperature as we did it in August, but the experience was amazing. The walk is around 3,8 kilometers and at the beginning you need to climb almost 500 steps. The effort is worth it as the views from the tops are simply stunning. It took us around 90 minutes doing some stops to take pictures and get rest.
  • Super nice path. Be careful, 17/10/21 only section Vernazza - Corniglia is open. You can use “mountain” trails to reach the others villages that are also really worth it (but longer!). only 3 stars because 7,50€ is really not fair considering that only 1/4 of the trail is open …
