Follow this path down to Volastra, where you will have the chance to taste excellent wines in the renowned local winery, then go back to the coast road (Litoranea). This part of the tour will lead you first to Manarola and then to Riomaggiore. Do not miss the chance to take pictures of the houses clinging to the hill and of the typical boats used by the local fishermen, the so-called “gozzi”. Both in Manarola and in Riomaggiore you will have the opportunity to taste local products such as focaccia, pesto, and Vermentino and to dive into clear blue waters.
Go back to the scenic route Litoranea to find your way back to La Spezia while enjoying the view on the Gulf of Poets.
From the Telegrafo hill, you can also follow AV5T, a path running through the woods which will lead you to the crossroads where the trails to Vernazza and Corniglia start (however, you can also reach both Corniglia and Vernazza by following the Litoranea from Volastra). You will have a hard time to decide which one of these two villages is the most fascinating: Corniglia, perched on the sea and concealing secret coves, or Vernazza with its elegant marina.
Last but not least, Monterosso is the biggest village in the Park. The village consists of two parts, which you can both reach with your e-bike, depending on whether you are willing to enjoy a sunbath on sandy beaches or a drink accompanied by anchovies.
