You have to buy a pass (by the day) to access the trail. Passes can be bought from the tourist centers in each train station. The pass may seem expensive but it's worth it because then you can use the trains to go between the...More

Not for the deconditioned, the hike starts with about 800 steps up the cliffs of Montorosso that winded through the vineyards and olive groves and stops along the way that yielded breathtaking views of the Mediterranean.

We had a very hot day in July, so the hike was not easy. Don't forget your water! Some parts can be very steep but manageable. The view was fantastic!

Fabulous must do activity for the physically fit. Bring water and wear supportive footwear! Be ready for a challenge but one worth the effort. It's an amazing sight to experience and burns enough calories to accommodate more gelato!

We enjoyed the trail, very winding and thin at times, and early on was up-hill climb, building up lots of sweat. The latter part was easier, more downhill. We encountered other hikers along the way, most were courteous and friendly. The entire hike took about...More

Did this in July starting around 9.30am. It takes a good 2 hours at a fairly brisk pace. It is challenging with lots of steep sets of stairs, rocky bits, narrow bits and virtually no flat walking. I would not attempt in the wet as...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the challenging and exhilerating hike between Vernazza and Monterosso this past June. It was very warm, so we packed many bottles of water in our backpacks and used all of it. We also had sunscreen, hats and good hiking footwear which we were...More

A well kept path by the 5 Terre, at first we couldn't understand why we had to pay to use a footpath, but when you use these you'll understand why. There's a lot of maintenance required, when we were walking the path there was a...More

This trip is a must for all people visiting Monterosso. It has a nice view and the road is well built. Could be a bit crowded some places, but it's usually no problem.

Monterosso is the easiest, as the station is a flat walk to either the Old City or the New City. Both are about a 5 minute walk from the station. Manorola is also easy, as the station is in a tunnel right in the middle of... More

I traveled in July ( top summer) but I suppose they will be running in November, why not? But I think the best time to visit this place is summer or spring time . Another point, take the local train to visit the towns

We walked from Monerosso to Corniglia in early January. The rest of the path was closed for maintenance. We were not charged anything to walk and paid at the station for the train. The weather was magnificent then - hope it... More
