Cinque Terre Walks Tips
Visitors who wish to go on a trek in Cinque Terre must remember to wear walking shoes and have a cap and water bottle in their backpack.


There are lots of Cinque Terre Walks you can enjoy during all the year! So, here is some inspiration from our selection of the best Cinque Terre walks you can try.

From La Sosta to Monterosso

La Sosta to Monterosso is about 3 hours long walk.

Spring is a great moment to savour. Indeed, during this season, you can enjoy the proliferation of wildflowers of every colour. In fact, walking in solitude, enjoying the sea views and the sounds of the Mediterranean woods will be priceless.

Moreover, a recommended break is Podere Case Lovara. This is an old rural farmhouse overlooking the sea and Punta Mesco, where the stop is a must for the beauty of the landscape.

Next, from here on the descent begins, and in a short time, you arrive in the charming old town of Monterosso.

From Levanto to Vernazza

From Levanto to Vernazza, is roughly 5 hours long walk.

This is really one of the best Cinque Terre walks. It starts from Levanto and goes up to the Sanctuary of Soviore, the oldest in Liguria. From here the so-called Road of the Sanctuaries begins.

This is a fantastic path, completely immersed in the Mediterranean vegetation, that leads to discovering Cinque Terre Romanesque churches. Also, during the journey, you can enjoy extraordinary views of Vernazza and the whole Cinque Terre coastline. And here we come to a second shrine, the Sanctuary of Reggio.

Next, from here descending a stairway, considered one of the most beautiful vertical routes of the Cinque Terre, we get to Vernazza.

Alta Via Delle Cinque Terre Road

Alta Via Delle Cinque Terre leads from Levanto to Portovenere, is about forty kilometres long walk and it takes about ten hours to cover it.

So, this is a demanding route, reserved for the more adventurous and recommended for the more experienced walkers. Anyway, The beauty of this route lies in the silence of the woods broken only by birds song. Take your time to enjoy the freshness during the hottest days, due to the shade of the trees and a gentle breeze blowing up from the sea. Moreover, Portovenere is a beautiful historic seaside town with a charming tangle of crowded streets.

The Alta Via Delle Cinque Terre is off the beaten track and one of the most complete route to discover a corner of the Cinque Terre National Park. Our suggestion is to try this Cinque Terre walk in the summertime, to enjoy the best from this hiking.
