très sympa mais l'ascension par les marchés au départ de MonteRosso est ardue

Pretty nice short hike. Plenty of stairs, but not the most that I have done here. Great view to Vernazza

Beautiful views. Many stairs. Did all 5 towns - except one that was washed out- and back.

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.

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

one of those hikes that you have to do it once and never again. the only people you will find on the trail are tourists. I did it during the heat wave of June 2019. It was hot and humid at 9am. the best part is the views of Vernazza.

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.
