Great trail in a volcano. It’s an easy walk, but no shade after the initial section (so can be hot in the summer). Beautiful views if the day is clear.

Most of the trail is along a road where cars travel at 80km+. There are some nice views, but it feels more like walking on the sidewalk to the middle of nowhere than walking on a actual trail. Overall it’s alright, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

This trail is fairly rocky. A bit of exposure in places. One short section of cable towards the end. A longer section of cable a bit higher up. I stopped at this point due to a lack of harness and carabiner.

Trail is well marked and easy to follow.

Easy trail with beautiful scenery. Crowded during tourist season, but worth the views.

The views on this trail can’t be beat. It’s an easy to follow trail, some parts more difficult than others. The stairs at the beginning or end are horrible, but well worth it for a hike like this. Grab a sandwich and picnic above the world. ❤️

Easy trail with beautiful scenery. Went in winter and certain parts of the trail covered in ice, but overall a great way to spend a few hours.

Decided to take a family hike, me being 22weeks pregnant, my husband and my 8 and 7 year old kids. It was very steep and the trail very slippery. Once we got to a plateau we noticed the trail was extremely overgrown. We were disappointed because we had climb so much only to loose the trail. It would have been a fun challenge if we could have kept moving forward.

The best.
The trail is stunning, Perfect for a trail running session. Head lamp needed becouse of long and dark tunnels.
Amazing trail also for hikers and families (yes, could be quit challenging due to about 800 meters elevation gain). September and october are the Perfect months to go there, due to better wheter conditions (Air stability and less rain probability).

Beautiful views. The weather was fantastic in August. Bring water.

I just arrived in Corniglia & I dragged my ~30-lb. suitcase up the 381 steps of the Scalinata Lardarina. One heck of an introduction to Cinque Terre!

Il sentiero è molto bello e difficile, belli i castelli e la vista. Penso sia poco adatto a bambini

The hike up Mount Vesuvius is beautiful! You really can’t go wrong here. Cars park at a lower lot and busses park higher to the crater, so if you come by car it will be a longer hike. The park itself was closed when we came but we were able to get up and see the crater, just couldn’t walk all the way around it. Highly recommend! Gorgeous views!

An incredible trail. The natural and man-made beauty along the way is insane, and the trail allows you to meet some very friendly locals and animals as well. If you do one hike in your lifetime, do this one. Simply amazing.

The most amazing hiking trail I’ve encountered yet. Grab a sandwich from the mom-and-pop grocery and stop at the entrance of the advanced section for a bite before heading upwards. Stay on the lookout for the wild goats, you’ll hear them as you get closer - listen for bell sounds. They’re super nice and will let you feed them.

We started from Monterosso to end up in Vernazza. It was absolutely beautiful. We ended up getting the day train pass from the Spezia train station which included the trail entrance fees. Definitely should wear good hiking shoes or tennis shoes. The first half was all up hills with lots of little stone stairs so if you have joint issues, might be a bit challenging. But you can take it leisurely so very doable. The views are spectacular of the sea and also the. Vineyard studded hill side. We made it to vernazza just before sunset. Stunning. No bathroom on the trail so go before. Would definitely recommend. Took us close to 3 hours because we went on a leisurely pace, stopping to take thousands of pictures. Bring plenty of water As well.

One of best scenery ever

Naples has something for everyone, history, food and the wonderful people make this walk a must do. It’s any easy walk and you need to go with the flow given how busy the streets can be in the afternoon. Always take care crossing the roads, particularly the bikes are a law until themselves.

This is a hike you will remember for the rest of your life. We hiked from bomerano to the shore of Positano and it was the most amazing hike I have ever completed. The views are so amazing it is hard to comprehend that they are real. If you are visiting the amalfi coast and in good physical condition, I 100% think you should do this hike. I couldn't think of one other thing that I would rather do if I were in this area again. This hike will take you the better part of the day if you plan on taking you time and soaking in all the views, plus stopping in Positano for some much needed food after the long hike.

Also, the trail can be difficult to follow sometimes. Keep an eye out and bring a map.

Good break from Napoli if you are nearby. Once it was well kept, nowadays just a path to top of volcano and around crater. Beautiful views to bay from top. Good parking.

This hike has it all. Loved every minute of it and hope to return. Leave yourself plenty of time to get to the trailhead, hike the terrain, take in the sights, and grab a beer after. 10/10.

I loved the scenic view from the start until the end. The thousands steps at the end are a great way to end this trail and to go swimming in Positano as a treat!

Amazing views! Great hike and easy to navigate. There are a LOT of large and unequal stairs/steps and my knees (whereas normally I'm advanced) ended up getting a major workout! But I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely amazing!

Fantastic views throughout the trail, not a lot of canopy so beware if you want to do it in summer

Best done in the morning, this way you will have the sun right on the goloritze beach, ideal months for this trail are June and late September, during summer it gets extremely hot in the canyon

good parking. From the crater rim, you can walk down the West side trail to Lago Averno and combine the two walks. Active Fumaroles on the south flank of Monte Nuovo on the trail. not on the main trail

Loop of the Grivò stream before climbing to the "Dei Zuc" castle and then to the Cucagna castle. Two castles assigned by the Patriarch Popone of Aquileia to the Auspergh Counts of Carinthia. The first one is from 1248 and the top one from 1027 was built by the same Counts who later expanded it in 1300.
They are 2 of the 10 or 11 Castles ranging from Nimis to Natisone (from Cregneu to Biaicis) that's why the Roman numeration.
You arrive and take the trail tour to the Church of San Rocco for medieval paths!

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

Spectacular views along the magnificent trail. It was quite strenuous coming into Monterroso, but worth the effort.
