Can you imagine taking a route along the Italian coast and enjoying the beauty of its colourful villages, its immense vineyards and all the charm of the Italian Riviera of Flowers? You’ve found the ideal trip. On the Liguria Coast hiking trail, you will have everything at your fingertips.

You will start your trip in Camogli, you will have the opportunity to walk along coastal paths and admire the blue of the Mediterranean Sea along much of the tour. You’ll pass stunning cliffs, tranquil beaches and find in your wake the five fishing villages of the Cinque Terre and you will end up in Portovenere, which many consider part of the ‘Cinque Terre’ for its charm.

On this route you will have the possibility to advance on foot in some sections and, in some others, take a train to visit nearby villages. You will know the glamour of Portofino, the spectacular San Fruttuoso Abbey and you can delight in the cuisine, coffee and traditional wines of the region.

If you are passionate about walking, at the end of this tour you will be able to try another of our Italian hiking routes: hiking in Cinque Terre, hiking on the Amalfi Coast or the Via Francigena.

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.
