Have you ever dreamed of knowing the charm of the Cinque Terre with its particular architecture and its cobbled alleys? We encourage you to start a hiking trail through the 5 fishing villages that make up this region declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and fall in love with its trails and cliffs.

You will start your trip in Monterosso and descend through the beauty of the Mediterranean coast that characterizes the area. Then you will cross vineyards and pine forests until you reach Portovenere, the end of your route. Along the way, you’ll pass through the Cinque Terre National Park.

In Santiago Ways, we want to be part of this adventure and help you enjoy your experience while you immerse yourself in the immensity of its spectacular places to swim and delight in its local coffee, its wild flowers and the smell of the sea that will follow you throughout its five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.

You can enjoy our baggage transfer service that will allow you to walk much easier while discovering the beauty of this hiking trail through the towns and villages you’ll be visiting.

Also, if you have any incidents en route, we are at your disposal 24 hours a day via an emergency telephone. With Santiago Ways, you will walk safely and comfortably.

We’re glad you’ve got this far. Now, we just need to know how you want us to help you prepare your trip. We’re waiting for you! Leave us your details and we will send you a quote tailored to your requirements.

Arrival in Monterosso

To start your hiking trail in Cinque Terre we suggest you get yourself to Genova, Pisa or Florence, from where you will have easy access and good train connections to Monterosso.

This collection of Mediterranean villages on the Ligurian Riviera can only be reached by train, boat or on foot. Once you arrive in Monterosso, enjoy its historic centre that will help you get closer from the beginning to the culture in the area.

If you have time, take a walk on the beach also during the arrival of the afternoon.

Overnight: Monterosso - Marina Hotel


Circular route in Levanto or walk towards Corniglia

For today we offer two walking options. The first is a circular route along the coastal paths between Levanto and Monterosso. Once the day is over, you can take a train back to Monterosso.

You can also walk back if your body allows it. On the other hand, the second option, where you can risk starting your route in Cinque Terre by climbing stone steps and exploring Vernazza and Corniglia before returning to Monterosso by train.

We assure you that on both routes you will enjoy incredible views over the Mediterranean, while delighting in the beauty of the Ligurian region.

From Riomaggiore to Portovenere

At the beginning of your day you need to take the train that takes you to Riomaggiore. Once there, walk up to Colle del Telegrafo and continue on a path with stunning panoramic views until you reach Campiglia.

As you go along, enjoy the wonder of the panoramic view over the Gulf of La Spezia before you start descending the stair-shaped paths to Portovenere.

If you are already very tired, you can return to Portovenere by bus from Campiglia.

Length: 13 km. | 723 m. of ascent; 744 m. of descent

Duration: 4-5 hours

Circular route on Palmaria Island

For today you will have to take a ferry that takes you to the island of Palmaria, located in the westernmost part of the Gulf of La Spezia to be able to explore it and discover the charm of its caves.

You will have the opportunity to encounter multiple bird species, such as the peregrine falcon, and the solitary sparrow, among others.

As a curious fact, we would like to tell you that this island, next to the Cinque Terre area, in 1997 was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Length: 6 km. | 326 m. of ascent; 339 m. of descent
