The Cinque


The Cinque Terre National Park is crossed by a dense network of trails, some very easy other more challenging, that connect small villages between them and go back to times when walking was almost the only way to move from one village to another . It is advisable to visit the 5 Terre on foot or by using the train or the boat, as the roads for cars are narrow and the parking lots are rare.

The Sentiero Azzurro, very panoramic and overlooking the sea, winds through the famous vineyard terraces, which have been awarded the UNESCO World Heritage Site for the Cinque Terre. The journey of about 4 hours links the villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore. At this time unfortunately the Via dell’Amore between Riomaggiore and Manarola is not viable.

For more experienced and trained hikers, other challenging trails offer a less touristic approach to the Park and lead to the discovery of untouched corners. The High Path (N.1) or ridge trail is an old mule track that runs on the watershed between the hinterland and the coast. The complete route takes about ten hours of walking, to be divided into two or three stages. Off the beaten track, the “Sentiero dei Santuari” connects the sanctuaries that overlook half the coast of each of the five villages of the Cinque Terre. The visit starts from the Santuario di Soviore (which is reached from Monterosso via a steep path), passes from the Madonna di Reggio Sanctuary (above Vernazza), then touches the small village of San Bernardino, crosses Volastra (above Manarola) and ends at the Sanctuary of Montenero, from which you can reach the coast by Riomaggiore.
