Make sure that you have decent shoes and a good camera. The views from the trails are stunning. Bring water on warm days.

The trail starts in Manarola up the main street and branches off at a clearly marked spot before the church. It terraces around the top of the town for about 500 meters and comes to a poorly marked spot on the right that goes straight...More

Yes absolutely. There is a train that takes you from town to town and it's an easy option if hiking is not. You can purchase the train tickets at any of the towns.
