Great views from this relatively easy walk between Vernazza and Corniglia. The path is in quite good conditions and is kept clean. I was surprised there is a daily charge to walk on the Cinqueterre paths.

We visited here on our 4th day of our stay. Not for the faint hearted. The climb up the side of the mountain from the train station was quite a work out. If your young and fit, your good. If you had already been to...More

We did the trail from Corniglia to Vernazza. We have reached the top after 4km, descending to Vernazza for the last 1,5km. I think that this direction is easier. The oath is easy. We have done it in a bit less than 1h30 with two...More

Taken train from La Spezia to Corniglia station. 400-ish steps to get to the town. Then trail well indicated, beautiful views of the town, the cliffs, Mediterranean, and the landscape. Not too difficult trail, but sturdy shoes and lots of water (and sun screen!) required!...More

If you visit cinque terre, you MUST hike! The views are amazing! I loved it. This was the only part of our hike where we were on the main coastal trail. You could definitely tell it was better maintained than other trails. Although it is...More

We did this after completing the Monterosso to Vernazza, so we were a little fatigued already and it was mid morning. If I had my chance again I would only walk one leg a day so that I could commence early each morning before the...More

This hike was grueling for me as I wasn't in shape. But our daughters who are in their 20s walked it very easily and moved on ahead of us. We stopped many times to take pictures - the sights are beautiful! - and catch our...More

The trail has no proper track and when we went in April, some rocks fell although they cleared the path so that we can continue with the hike. So it may not be a good idea in your condition.

Two-three days would be fine. I'd give it three to really enjoy the area. The coastal trails are free but rock slides have closed all but Vernazza to Corniglia I believe. Check the Italian Park website for the latest... More
