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.
