Santa Margherita – Portofino (duration 2,5 hrs, slope 250m)
An easy walk, suitable for everyone, brings you to the eastern side of promontory with panoramic views over the Paraggi bay, the Abbey of Cervara and the gulf of Tugullio. The route runs through the area above the valley of mills up to the Mulino Gassetta and the village of Portofino.
Hike from Camogli to the War World Two “Bunkers” to Punta Chiappa (duration: 3 hrs, slope 250m)
From Camogli village, unique for it’s traditions and stories of sailors, a steep muletrack brings you up to San Rocco di Camogli, one of the “doors” of the regional park and its trails. From here you continue to the „Bunkers” where you can see recently renovated fortifications of the Second World War, and then continue downhill towards Punta Chiappa. From here you can take a boat and go to San Fruttuoso or return to Camogli.
Levanto - Monterosso (duration: 3 hrs, slope: 350m)
Welcome to the National Park of Cinque Terre, also called the “Park of Man” because of the ancient dry-stone walls and terraces overlooking the sea. The path starts from the castle of Levanto to get on the promontory of Punta Mesco, western boundary of the National Park and beautiful view point of the five towns. After reaching the summit of the promontory, between olive trees, Mediterranean plants and the remains of an abbey of the sixteenth century, the trail comes down to Monterosso, the largest village of the Park and the only one with a shingle beach in front of a beautiful sea.
Corniglia – Volastra – Manarola (3 hrs, slope 300 m)
Corniglia is the only village of Cinque Terre located on the promontory overlooking the sea that has no sea port. From here among the vineyards a steep path brings you to one of the most scenic areas of the park: walking on the walls between the terraces you will reach the ancient village of Volastra, where you can see one of the Marian shrines of the XII century. From here you follow the stairs used in the past by farmers and pilgrims to reach Manarola – home to the Cantina Sociale of National Park.
