This trail leaves from the southernmost village of Cinque Terre and heads south to Portovenere. Beautiful panoramic views throughout this hike.

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.
