Hiking in Italy - Liguria (Chapter)
This is the Liguria chapter from Lonely Planet's Hiking in Italy guidebook.
With the five towns of Unesco-listed Cinque Terre grafted like diamond crystals onto its rocky cliffs, the Ligurian coastline contains one of the most popular - and busiest - hikes in Italy. Despite the crowds, this steep, coastal trail that winds for 12 precipitous kilometres is definitely worth it.
- 'take five' in Cinque Terre on the Sentiero Azzurro between Monterosso al Mare and Riomaggiore
- take the high road and find relative solitude on the Sentiero Rosso on the hills above Cinque
- see how the top one percent live amid the yachts and Ferraris of ritzy Portofino
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: History, Climate, Planning, Cinque Terre, Sentiero Azzurro, Sentiero Rosso, Santuario Circuit, Parco Regionale di Portofino, Promontorio di Portofino Circuit, Towns & Facilities.
