CINQUE TERRE HIKING
Check the Cinque Terre trail update (open or close path?)
The Cinque Terre are crossed by a dense network of coastal and interior footpaths. The "Sentiero Azzurro", Blue Path, is the coastal trail and allows to reach the five villages in five hours walking, while the "Sentiero Rosso", Red Path, or "Alta Via delle 5 Terre", climbs from Portovenere to Levanto. The "Via dei Santuari", Sanctuaries Path, is more challenging and leads to places of religious interest upon the five villages.
The panoramas that can be admired from many points of the trails are beautiful and very evocative, especially along the coast path. All the paths are of low or moderate difficulty, but still have to be addressed very carefully, especially in winter months.
