Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

The ‘Cinque Terre’ gets its name from the five picturesque villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. 
The area, now a major National Park, is a unique part of Italy. But the Region of Liguria has more to offer: the nearby small towns of Portovenere, and the wonderful island of Palmaria just in front of it, at the entrance of the ‘Gulf of Poets’ and the lively Levanto, a charming medieval town with a broad beach. Of course there is also the famed Peninsula of Portofino, not only known for the colourful Portofino itself, resort for the Italian jet-set, but also for the abbey of San Fruttuoso, located in an isolated inlet of this beautiful coastline, and wonderful Camogli. Walking here is an unforgettable experience!

  
Characteristics of the route:

This is a moderately easy tour which is suitable for those who have some experience with walking and a good general physical condition.
Most of the walks are on good paths, some of them just recently restored by the local authorities.
