  • 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 …
  • Unforgettable route that belongs to my 3 favorite hikes in the region. Majority of path is in shadow which makes the hike also comfortable temperatures. We also had a few elderly and younger people with physical limitations for whom it was easily doable. Also every few hundred meters you will find water taps which diminish the need of carrying huge and heavy bottles. So if you are looking for a light hike that is easily doable for all kind of people I can definitely recommend it.
  • Highly recommend this hike trail! We did it with our two girls ages 5 & 6. The views were awesome! I can see experienced hikers taking over an hour to complete but with two little people it took us almost 2.5 hrs. Recommend to pack plenty of water, good shoes (we used our running shoes), snacks and charged phone for pics. Happy hiking!
  • Besides the stairs of doom and the very narrow paths it was a super fun trail! Would hate to do it durring the busy as some spots only one person can pass at time. Was a bit harder for then excepted and the 7 euro entry was annoying
