Hiking in the Cinque Terre

Hiking in the Cinque Terre attracts thousands of tourists every year: the old routes used for farming or to connect the ancient villages of the Cinque Terre, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees,for trekking lovers visiting from all over the world.

The Cinque Terre villagesconnected with an intricate network of paths and trails, are a natural invitation to trek between the heights and the coast or stay at high altitudes to cross vineyards and olive groves. Hiking in the Cinque Terre can often be done on the ancient mule tracks marked by dry walls that have passed the centuries and still characterize the landscape of the Cinque Terre Park. For those who love trekking in the Cinque Terre, there are so many opportunities to have fun outdoor facing different paths, all of them with a beautiful view onto the sea.

The best way to discover the hiking trails and study the feasibility of an itinerary in the Cinque Terre is to purchase the Cinque Terre Card, which, besides allowing you to travel to the Cinque Terre with a single train ticket, offers various natural and cultural guided tours.

Tracks have very different levels of difficulty and lengths: while some of them are just a cozy half an hour walk, others can be very long and challenging. Before leaving for any hiking in the Cinque Terre, it is essential to inform yourself about the condition of the trails, which can be closed because of earlier bad weather.

Many routes have unfortunately been closed by landslides for safety reasons: one of them is the famous Via dell’Amore, a beautiful panoramic route partially excavated in the mountain rocks that separates the nearby villages of Riomaggiore and Manarola. It is closed due to a landslide that seriously compromised it.

There is also a fee to trek in some of the Park’s trails.
The best way to be informed and to look forward to the viability and feasibility of hiking trails in the Cinque Terre is to purchase the Cinque Terre Card which, besides allowing you to travel to the Cinque Terre with a single train ticket, gives information and access to the open trails.
