Enjoyed experiencing this amazing trail with my wife on our vacation. We hiked this trail during the off-season in November, so we only came across a handful of other hikers and some cats. We were extremely lucky to get the perfect three hour window without rain to reach Vernazza from Monterosso al Mare. I recommend this trail, especially during off-season, to anyone wanting to walk a perfect path.

A beautiful hike which you can end with a dip in the Ligurian Sea

Nice trail with a couple of gorgeous views of the towns.

Nice walk. Do it in the morning or evening in summer. Views of the towns from above but brief.

Amazing view, but a lot of stair.

Amazing views from the top of the trail, bit of a hard slog getting up and was medium-busy when leaving Montorosso at 8:45

I would recommend splitting this up and staying in Riomaggiore for the night and continuing on to Portovenere. This hike was awesome with a lot of good views from Riomaggiore to Portovenere.

Did the hike last week. Go early in the morning if you want a better chance of avoiding crowds. Hugged by beautiful views of the ocean, vineyards and wildflowers. There are a good number of steep steps and rocky path and some people use walking sticks for assistance. Path can be narrow (only 1 person can pass) at some parts. I started from Monterosso and it was magical to see Vernazza appear as you get get closer.
