Classical hiking trails? And off-the-beaten tracks? – [F.A.Q. Cinque Terre]

Classical hiking trails cinque terre? And off-the-beaten tracks?

The most famous footpath of Cinque Terre is the trail n° 2, known like “Blue Path”: it includes also the famous “Via dell’Amore” (Love Path) between Riomaggiore and Manarola. Unfortunately, actually (March 2014) this trail is still closed due to security works along the trail but, luckily, the Cinque Terre is not only the famous “Via dell’Amore” and footpath number 2 along the coast.
Actually the most beautiful hiking experiences and the most spectacular views are to find on the secondary footpaths – like the one going from Monterosso to the sanctuary Soviore and then to Vernazza.

Or the one from Manarola via Volastra to Corniglia. There is a new net of footpaths prepared and cleaned in 2013 above Manarola and Riomaggiore – all of them very scenic and definitely off the beaten tracks.

Always a highlight of course is the hike from Riomaggiore to Portovenere, it’s one of the longest and hardest ones in the area but definitely worth.

Also the valley of Levanto is offering a net of beautiful hikes leading through olive groves, ancient villages and offering nice views.

A great experience is to make a guided hike – the local guides are very competent and explain a lot about local plants, local people and their history.

Two guided hikes are offered by Arbaspàa including also a culinary element: a lunch in an ancient osteria (a hidden place difficult to find…) or a meeting with a local winegrower who explains the history of wine growing in the Cinque Terre.
