Trail 2, Riomaggiore

3.8
#6 of 8 in Parks in Cinque Terre
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.

  • Everything has been said. I add just to enlighten. Actually on the way to hike you won't find shops or large shops... but I thought that it was obvious to all. However there is a small bar for to refresh and go to the bathroom... and enjoy the view from the terrace. Corneglia and in the summer at least, there are including buses in the cinque card making the transit station village if we can't take the markets. Do without hesitation.

  • But what a view! Sensitive souls or fearful of the effort go your way! It climbs well! 1 h 45 from recommended ride, we did it in 50 minutes but it is difficult to overtake people and sometimes the path is very narrow, arm yourself of patience but the game worth the candle! Arrival to Corniglia is superb!

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

It's hard to go wrong with accommodations in Cinque Terre, home to some of the most charming hotels and bed and breakfasts in the country. Choosing among them depends largely on what you want most from your trip. Consider spending a restful vacation on the hilltop to enjoy the famous ocean views, or plant yourself somewhere closer to the shoreline in Riomaggiore for easy access to beaches. If you expect to spend lots of time exploring side streets and local shops, opt for accommodations along one of the main streets in any of the villages. Though it can be difficult to find inexpensive lodgings here, there are some more affordable options in Manarola, the smallest of the five villages, and Monterosso. You can even stay at a hostel in the national park if you want to be close to nature.
