WOW Loved hiking The view along the hike is spectacular. By far one of the most beautiful hikes we had the chance to do. Some exposed passages are not for the faint-hearted but definitively worth the effort!

Beautiful trail to get to San Fruttuoso. It will take a few hours. Not recommended for sedentary people, children or if you've fear of the heights (in some places the trail it is overhanging). Bring good hiking shoes. Splendido sentiero panoramico per raggiungere San Fruttuoso...More

This is a fabulous walk that leads to San Fruttuoso from Camogli - it takes around 2.5 - 3 hours, depending on how fast you walk, and is not for the faint-hearted or anyone not used to hiking or anyone who is afraid of heights....More

Well worth the effort, is hiking the Camogli - San Rocco Trail. You'll be rewarded with breath-taking views of the sea coast-line, the town quaint of Camogli. The lush lush mountain-side trail winds upwards from Camogl. Bring a picnic lunch and of course water. The...More

Compared to the Cinque Terra area nearby, Camogli is much less popular with tourists but just as beautiful. The seaside village of Camogli is typically full of local Italians at the beach, but this trail is much less travelled. When I reached the Punta Chiappa...More

I'll start this review with a baseline of physical expectations. I hiked this trail with my boyfriend. He's upper 30's, wakes up at 5am to go to the gym and trains people to run half marathons...for fun. I'm in my early 30's and once ran...More

We arrived by boat and walked through the village. You can head straight up the hill for a great view. The Cathedral is worth a visit. Many good retaurants including food right off the boat
