  • Excellent little trek, start early so you can do the walk in t shade. And bring proper shoes and water.

  • This is a great hike, but it is a "hike" and not a walk. Many people wore hiking shoes. We did fine with good quality sneakers. There are a lot of steps, a bit of scrambling and spectacular views...

  • Started the hike from Monterosso to Vernazza early in the morning to avoid big crowds and waiting lines and I enjoyed it a lot. One more reason to start early in the morning is to avoid the sun which might make the hike way harder than it actually is. The hike started with a big climb with lots of stairs and then becomes easier. The are some spots with a very nice view of the sea and the two villages where you can take some nice pictures. Totally recommend.
  • Lovely hiking trail, quite steep at the beginning but after 20 min it becomes quite flat. Wear hiking shoes or sneakers, avoid sandals since the route it's filled with hard rocks. From Vernazza to Monterosso is the easier way, if you want a tougher uphill then try Monterosso to Vernazza. You can take nice shots of Vernazza while hiking this route.
