Between hamlets and evocative backdrops

Enclosed in an enchanting embrace between land and sea, enjoy becoming lost while walking or biking along a network of 120 km of paths including clearly marked panoramic itineraries often also linked with specific themes such as those among the vineyards of the local raisin wine Sciacchetrà or among ancient settlements. These trails lead into the authentic beauty of the five pastel-coloured, jewel-like villages set between the sea and hills, declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Riomaggiore and Manarola are linked by the panoramic pedestrian Via dell'Amore overlooking the sea, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso are all characterized by their own Marian Sanctuary and the Monterosso Literary Park dedicated to Eugenio Montale. The Protected Marine Area has special itineraries for swimming and kayaking, some suitable even for the disabled, and spectacular sea beds for snorkelling and diving among starfish, lobsters and barracudas. In summer, sea outings take visitors to the Cetacean Sanctuary to spot fin whales, dolphins and sperm whales.
