Hiking in Portovenere

Map of all roads in Portovenere and the Cinque Terre

Ligurian coast: lowlands, mountains, cliffs covered with hundreds of footpaths, which connect the villages and the beaches. This area was not touched by industrial development, its natural origin and views attract tourists from all over the world.
On the right there is a map of the main footpaths between Portovenere, Cinque Terre and Levanto. In reality they are more numerous, some of them seem inaccessible during your visit, but there is always an alternative path, follow the signs, which will show you the way. You can find a map of currently valid footpaths in the tourist’s centers, which are situated near railway stations and passenger ship terminals.

Number 1 is for the longest path, it is called the High Path. It goes along the shore, sometimes ascending too high, and connects Portovenere and Levanto, it has slopes to almost all areas of the town, for example it takes 4 hours on average to get from Portovenere to Riomaggiore (see image for more details).

Number 2 is for the easiest path, accessible for all tourists without any special preparation. It is called the Blue Path (Sentiero Azzuro), it connects all towns of Cinque Terre, it is the nearest to the sea and requires a daily pass that costs 5 euro. The most famous of its parts - the path of love, extends from Riomaggiore to Manarola takes about 15 minutes and everyone can enjoy its scenery, even the disabled and children.

Palmaria Island has a lot of hiking trails and paths as well. You are strongly advised to visit them, if you like walking through the forest without any sign of civilization.

Equipment: if walking along the Blue Path (connects the towns of Cinque Terre) you won’t need any special equipment, but if you are going to walk other paths as well it is advisable to have comfortable footwear (trainers, keds etc.), a cap, to provide yourself with water, and trekking poles.
