This is MUST DO!!! Not difficult hike, ascent is pretty steady, and no major ups / downs. Most difficult part is final downhill, most steepest part also. Trail majority of the time is in the shadow. It gives very different views: initially up to the church (pretty nice spot for the break); then open panoramic part till telegraph; after starts almost flat part in the woods, wellbeing path. After Campiglia (pretty windy and chilly stop) - there is nice view to La Spezia, I would say start most beautiful part of hike , path is rocky is pretty narrow in some places, but view is amazing, till reach open spot for good pitstop. I am not fast hiker, it took me 4.5 h relaxing walk only. Allow at least 2 h extra for breaks and obviously for Portovenere. Be aware of last boat, it was 17:00, otherwise need to taxi or bus to La Spezia snd then train.

Really beautiful and very diverse hike. Crowds after 11am, start early. There is alternative cutoff part from/to Riomaggiore, but it is all steep steps, would not recommend.

Hiked this route May 9, 2019 in gorgeous weather. the trail was mostly dry, some mucky places but nothing serious. Stopped in Telegrafo for a coffee at Colle Del Telegrafo. Continued on until stopping in Campiglia for a great lunch at La Lampara which we highly recommend. After Campiglia you begin the descent all the way to Portevenere. Take it easy as this is several miles down and can get rough on the knees. Total time for us was 5.5hrs with the stops. Highly recommend this hike! Personal rating of moderate difficulty due to the elevation changes.

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