Cinque Terre Trail in Liguria Italy

Monterosso Italy Tourist Information and Vacation Guide

The Cinque Terre Trail (Sentiero Azzurro) is a gorgeous 12 km trail that runs along the Italian Riviera.

The picturesque tail connects the town of Monterosso al Mare at the north to the town of Riomaggiore at the south.  The Cinque Terre trail passes through three other towns: Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola.

Although 12 kilometers might be too long of a journey to hike for very young or elderly hikers, visitors have the option of hiking short segments of the trail.  Some portions of the trail take less than one hour to complete.
