How to get around in Cinque Terre

The best way to experience the Cinque Terre is by foot! During the walk along the mountain side you go through the Mediterranean bush, between the sky and sea! The Cinque Terre is traversed by many ways. The main path goes along the shore and connects all the five villages in about five hours walk. There are also some difficult paths for expert tourists. However, we would tell you of four main possibility of moving in Cinque Terre:

A huge part of the Cinque Terre's success with tourists is due to the trails and walks which curve round the shore or reach the sanctuaries near each village. The view is breath-taking and enjoyable by all. Someone can return from these hikes by bus, motor ship or train. You only need basic equipment: shoes with anti-slippery sole (if you have), long trousers to defend oneself from the thorn scrubs, some water and, according to the season, a large straw hat or a sports jacket.
Here is map of the paths: official site page, landscape map, one more map.
The Blue Path - connects the five villages, is the most legendary and evocative path in the Cinque Terre. Important!!! The part between Manarola and Corniglia is closed for reconstruction work (upd. July 2024).
The High Path - it`s a difficult path, so if you are a serious hiker and you want a lot of fun and experience then you have to go at the High Path. This trail essentially stretches beyond the National Park of Cinque Terre and links the towns of Levanto in the north with Portovenere in the south.
The Sanctuaries Ways - This path was created after the last war and it got its title to the fact that it links all the sanctuaries of the National Park in the Cinque Terre. Each village has its own Sanctuary to which the residents are treated by a deep devotion.
