Trail 2, Riomaggiore

(3.7/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • It is the coastal path that links the five towns, the most famous and managed from the t. To access them you must purchase the t Card. The trail is gorgeous but unfortunately for many years taken from Corniglia in Riomaggiore is closed. It was posted 531 variant combining Manarola to Riomaggiore but nothing to do with the old way of love. It is a pity that you cannot restore the old layout so panoramic

  • The coastal path number 2 is the main path, known as the blue trail, which crosses the entire Cinque Terre from Monterosso to Riomaggiore. Between the latter and Manarola becomes the famous Via dell'Amore. Unfortunately the route is often closed intermittently for maintenance or safety due to maintenance and landslides and on my last outing at 5 Terre I had to resort frequently to the local train or hiking at high altitudes that are more tiring.
