NOTE: As of September 2019, parts of the trail are closed, but there are alternative routes. The most spectacular views of the sea, the towns of Manarola and Corniglia and of the ancient terraced vineyards that surround these villages. Parts of the trail are challenging and the steps are steep and narrow at points. You may have to wait for other hikers coming in the opposite direction on ledges. A tip: start in Corniglia and go to Manarola if you prefer to travel downhill more then uphill. The descent into Manarola is quite long.

Partis dans le sens Corniglia vers Manarola, montée costaud au départ sur 3,5 km (environ 330 mètres de dénivelé) mais la récompense est la vue depuis les vignes en terrasses, superbe... Descente vers Manarola peu intéressante mais la vue par le « chemin panoramique » aide...

I left from Riomaggiore town and followed red and white paint route 506. Some parts were closed but easy alternative routes available so refer the locals. Google map wasnt updated even other parts of closure. It is the most beautiful section among the entire Blue trail that's coastal section. Quite exposed and crowded.

Epic. One of the best hikes I’ve done ever. This portion was our favourite of the Cinque Terre segments. The initial ascent is challenging but so worth it!

Amazing. Absolutely a good alternative route with that section of the blue trail being closed. It is a lot harder though, so take that into account if you attempting all three possible sections in a day. It’s steep and wide open - so suggest early morning or late evening. The sun was an absolute killer on the climb. Utterly beautiful and well worth it though!

Excellent panorama au milieu des vignes. Vue imprenable sur Corniglia et Manarola. Montée un peu intensive en partant de Corniglia (30 à 45 min) puis que du bonheur car assez plat avec beaucoup de points de vue. Au départ de Manarola, ce sont beaucoup de marches qui vous attendent vers Volastra.

wore Chacos, shorts and a t-shirt. Bring water, snacks, and sunscreen. Rest of the group didn't want to go on, so caught a bus from Volastro back to Manarola.

We did this hike June 16. Perfect weather and not quite as hot a day. The trail is well traveled and marked. The steps leading up and down are somewhat difficult. We just took short breaks and pressed on. The middle portion of the hike is a perfect, restorative, and gorgeous. Views from Manarola and Corniglia are amazing.

We did this trail as a default when the blue trail from Corniglia to Vernazza was closed, but I’m so glad we did. The most spectacular views of the sea, the towns of Manarola and Corniglia and of the ancient terraced vineyards that surround these villages. Parts of the trail were challenging and we did see a few older hikers who turned around as the steps are steep and narrow at points. Often had to wait for other hikers coming in the opposite direction on ledges. I used a hiking pole on this trail and was glad I had it.

We did this hike in the opposite direction as was how did all the hikes. Stunning! There are even a few places to stop for lemonade along the way. It is a fairly difficult hike at times but the view is asolutely amazing! Remember to bring your walking poles and lots of water!

Excellent views, definitely a must while in town and one of the only trails open now.

Did Manarola to Corniglia just now. There's ascent both ways. From Manarola, it's lots of stairs and from Corniglia, it's rocky incline. I prefer ascending stairs.

Truely unique way to see the UNESCO heritage site. A tip: start in Corniglia and go to Manarola if you prefer to travel downhill more then uphill. The descent into Manarola is quite long.
