  • All the paths traveled to the Cinque Terre, it is by far the most difficult. Provide good shoes and plenty of water. Prefer starting from Vernazza to Monterosso to avoid a climb without end on the start of the course. Half the battle is shading which is rather nice.

  • Very nice rands, do not forget good shoes for the RAND to 2 hours more time of the photos. Early April it was safe, r but in July August this must be crowded.

  • We started the path from Vernazza from the direction of Monterosso. And there you have the worst piece uphill right at the beginning then (unfortunately). The steps are uneven, very high and very steep part. Unfortunately, here too the way is quite narrow, so that you, want you do break, something immediately blocked. It is wonderful to enjoy the views, but footwear is also an absolute must, enough water supply. I think not enough breaks in the other reviews, that's really a physical challenge. Now in April, it is already quite warm - and this part of the trail gets lots of Sun. Best to make it right in the morning then afternoon or morning. As that may be in the summer heat, I do not imagine better. I'm not mega well trained, but I'm also not a Couchpotatoe. For me, it was very intense. On the way toll will be charged a 7.50 euros, one has the Cinque terre card that included. The piece of Vernazza - Corniglia is way more enjoyable!
