We hiked between all five towns a couple weeks ago, and I think this stretch was the hardest. This one is about 3km in length, and it took us about an hour. When I asked the lady at the tourist information office about it, she...More

Very steep, not for elderly people. Beautiful views over Riomaggiore on the way up through small vinyards. Once you reach the top, you have a beautiful view over Manarola and some of the other small cities. We used about 2.5 hours.

The via del amore was closed so we took the higher path along the ridge. It was really scenic and relatively quite compared to others in the area. Very nice.

Let me start by saying diving off of any cliff is dangerous and I would never recommend it. That said, the cliffs that I saw people jumping from (not too much diving) are to the left of the main port as you look at... More

Definitely only stay in one town. They are all reached easily by frequent trains. I recently stayed in Monterosso al Mare. The reason I choose it is because as the biggest town it has the most amenities that I like. More... More
