Beautiful views and a good climb on the west side! It took us just over two hours at a pretty steady pace.

Honestly this was so easy! We saw all ages and body types making their was up to see the crater. Unfortunately we went on a day that was very foggy so we couldn’t see inside but it was super cool to be so close to such a historic site!! Worth the 10 euros!!

beautiful. arrived by ferry to vernazza. hiked to corneglia. had lunch and hiked back to vernazza. by then hike was elbow room only.

there is a bus (costs about eu3) from the train station at Pompeii or Orcelano that takes you to the trail ticket office. cost for trail is eu10. trail is about 300 m up the road from ticket office and you need to have those tickets to start the trail. Don't take a taxi. and don't take a taxi going down either. these stop a bit further down at parking lot and don't always go all the way back to a train station. tickets for bus are bought on board. schedule for bus going back is not frequent and remains a mystery.

Really super trail but someone should have posted something about hunting season being open. Lots of shotguns heard along the way.

Not much you say other then... wow. :o

Beautiful views! Slightly challenging uphill but if you are moderately in shape you should be fine. Well-marked and if you dont want to do the whole 4 miles there is a marked trail half way that will take you back down to your car and the cute and strange little bar/restaurant where a cold beer was appreciated! This is what we did and it took us 2 hours. If doing the whole loop around altissimo I think it would be 4 hours but I stop and take a lot of pictures. The ride up in our car to get to the trail was exciting (gps was exact) and beautiful as well- mountains and small towns with views that extend to the sea.

Se il tracciato si compie durante una giornata solegggiata si trovano parecchie gelaterie lungo il percorso; se invece piove ci si consola con calici in diverse enoteche selezionatissime.

Beatific! Especially at sunset.

Beaucoup de marches. Évitez les jours trop chauds

trail starts by a blue house in Levanto. glorious views of the sea through out. lots of steps up and down on both ends of the trail.

The views you get on this hike are awesome. All the villages and the mostly untouched coastline makes for a unique experience.

Difficulty : Moderate, It can be steep at times but not the biggest struggle if fit. Walk to or from Monterosso with this hike to make a great days hike, with time in each village. Mod - Heav Traffic.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Trail is very beautiful though it can be quite rough and steep at times, though walked past plenty of people over 65+ and some were overweight walking this path so for most people it can be done. Add on as many other walks in this area to create a bigger hike, as I believe most people walk or have walked from Corniglia - Vernazza with this hike.

Moderate - Heavy Traffic, Moderate Difficulty

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Enjoyable hike sheltered by trees. Great cafe with local produce at the end of the hike!

Beautiful! Wish I had my hiking poles with me.

If there was a UN World Heritage Hikes list, this would be near the top.

Piacevole camminata su una delle prime camionabili tracciate negli anni '80 per favorire sistemi avanzati di esbosco meccanizzato. Progettazione ed esecuzione effettuata dallo scrivente che si compiace del risultato nonostante che per il tracciamento e l'esecuzione abbia subito noiose contestazioni di parte in funzione di forti interessiprivati o pretestuose contestazioni tese al discredito professionale. L'esistenza e persistente stabilità dell'infrastruttura dimostra il contrario: eseguire tracciati sostenibili con riduzione massima del "cut & fill" consente la visitazione della foresta ed il controllo della stessa per perpetuazione e miglioramento della composizione cenotica, intervento antincendio consentendo redditività forestale per i privati.

great hike. trail is very narrow in places. uneven terrain and stairs in numerous locations. I left Vernazza at 830am, when I arrived in Monterossa there was an attendant charging people for access to the trail. no attendant at Vernazza. I have no idea if you hike early it's free or I just got lucky. the climb from Monterossa is very, very steep and long.

It’s definitely a challenging trail.

This app is hopeless, the maps won’t load even if you have pro.

Amazing views from the summit, but the last hour to reach it seems very long (very climb trail)

Sooo many stairs! So worth it! We did the hike from Corniglia to Manarola and the climb was steep at the beginning but a much steeper decent into Manarola. Beautiful views, patches of shady forest, gorgeous vineyards and olive groves.

Incredible views throughout! Definitely not for the faint of heart or those wearing flip-flops. You will sweat. A lot. Bring water, wear sturdy shoes or better yet hiking boots. Bring a few euros for a chance encounter with an 80 year-old man selling fresh squeezed orange juice and grapes along the way!

Gorgeous views and oftentimes shaded paths. There's a fair amount of climbing stairs both up and down and uneven ground so I definitely recommend hiking boots or good sneakers. There's a path down to the sea partway along.

E' tra i migliori sentieri delle Valli del Natisone. Si può partire da Clabuzzaro e giungere fino a Castelmonte. L'ultima parte ( circa 1,5 km ) non è coerente per impegno e facilità con il resto. Lo si può fare anche con le Cjaspole alle prime nevi.

Very crowded and hot! No shade, but coming into Vernazza is worth it! The climb up and the descent are steep.

This hike was a spur of the moment, the wife and I decided one morning to see how much ground we could cover. We are very active, in our minds it was fairly easy. There were some breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea but there was also a lot of time off the coast. Will do this again next time we are in the area, great way to breakup the gluttony of vacationing in Italy!
