If you plan a travel to Cinque Terre, you probably know that hiking is one of the best ways to enjoy this gorgeous territory made just of mountains and sea.
Everybody should make at least a short hiking to enjoy the spectacular views of the vineyards and the villages but hiking on the trails of Cinque Terre means going up and down and, above all, a lot of steps.
- Occasional hikers
If you are not trained, don’t worry, you can choose a short trail, just to reach a beautiful panoramic place: for example you can walk till the monastery in Monterosso or walk on the ring trail around Manarola village that will make you walk among the vineyards and enjoy amazing views of the village. Take a look to this special Cinque Terre trip we have designed for you.
In any case remember to walk comfortable shoes, and choose the right time of the day: early morning or sunset are ideal especially in summer.
