We were unable to walk the first two legs of this trail because of falling rocks. We walked the third leg, but took the wrong path which was much more difficult. However, the views were absolutely amazing, and the experience will never be forgotten.

This is absolutely a beautiful place to visit. I went in July which was very crowded but very enjoyable. I did four of the five trails. I took my time and walked the trails and took pictures along the way. The best pictures are from the trails. I took a train from Milan to Riomaggiore, Italy. I brought a ticket... More

These are not for the faint of heart. Demanding, breathtaking treks and views. Some of the trails are closed between towns due to landslides. Monterrosso to Vernazza to Corniglia are open, but quite challenging. Hike for part and take the boat for the rest.

The walk from Monterosso al Mare to Levanto was very steep and hot on the day we went. Take water, hat, sunscreen and rest whenever you need to. Catch the train back to Monterosso al Mare. we then did the relatively easy trek to Vernazza which gives the iconic view towards the end of the walk. A nice preparation for... More

Prepare yourself for some serious stairs :) Breathtaking views. Keep your eyes peeled for signs for the next town or the white and red stripes that indicate you're still on the trail. Some are closed for the office season, but with a little patience you can hike 4 of the 5. One of my favorite spots in the world. The... More

Hike along the coastal path and take in the amazing views. We did this in November and the weather was perfect, sunny and warm. The hike contains a lot of steps (one section is 600 steps) so you need to happy with lots of steps and some vertical drops!

These not very challenging trails let you enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean and the 5 lands, appreciating the connection between them. I went during the summer, when Italy was at its hottest, and the fresh air in these trails was a huge lifesaver. Even though there were a lot of tourists in all of the lands, in the... More

My wife and I stayed in Vernazza. We planned to do the trek to Riomaggiore and then take a boat to Monterosso and hike back to Vernazza from there. Rick Steves said the hike to Riomaggiore should take a couple of hours assuming that the ocean path (number 2) was open. Well, it is not open, or at least it... More
