Trail 2, Riomaggiore

(300+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
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.

  • Absolutely love this trail. As others have mentioned it is closed in various sections. We hiked 2 different sections of the trail. At the train station we noticed there was a map highlighting the area...  more »
  • We walked between four of the five villages! The views are stunning and most of them are accessible for the average hiker, except for the one between Manarola and Riomaggiore.  more »
