3.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Trail 2, also known as Sentiero Azzurro, connects the five villages that make up Cinque Terre. Hike through terraced hills covered in vineyards and olive trees, with panoramic views of the sea and the picturesque towns you will pass. Stop in each town to explore before continuing to the next. You may choose to hike the whole path, or choose a smaller portion, depending on your stamina and desires. Some of the paths include many stairs, so be sure you are prepared with good walking shoes, water, and plenty of sunscreen. You can buy a day trail pass, which includes transportation on the park buses and access to the trails. For a little more money, another pass allows you to ride the train between Levanto and La Spezia as well. Arrange to visit Trail 2 and other attractions in Cinque Terre using our Cinque Terre vacation builder.

  • My boyfriend and I drove from Monterosso to mid morning to browse the blue path. Breathtaking though many, many steps. You walk through the olive groves, the agave and the stone walls, the charity is challenging but if taken with calmness and determination feasible. Pleased and satisfied by arriving in Vernazza we decided after lunch and rested a bit left for Corniglia ... still steps ... many, many even more than before, but the scenery reward of all labors. On a day so we walked the blue path from Monterosso to Corniglia, the other two places we visited the next day by ferry from Lerici. One turns beautiful, thrilling, but lived a full ... a sour note ... lactic acid on the day after you feel in someone like me not at all accustomed to exercise ... I highly recommend it!! You can do it each with its rhythms and tempi. We await the 2018 for opening the other piece of the blue trail to go back again! See you soon Cinque Terre
