- Parco delle Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre have some truly breathtaking paths on the hills above the famous villages, immersed in nature and overlooking the sea.Walking along them is a perfect way to get to know the Mediterranean vegetation, the fauna and the typical scents of the Ligurian land.
One of the most famous and also easiest paths suitable for everyone is the romantic “via dell’amore”. From the Manarola station, it continues along sections carved into the rock and along the coast on cliffs above the sea.
Another amazing path is the one from Monterosso to Vernazza, which has an initial staircase in the middle of vineyards and olive groves, continuing with a flat stretch and steep panoramic slopes overlooking the sea.
