Guided Day Hike #2: the Cinque Terre National Park from Manarola to Corniglia

Discover the Cinque Terre and its vineyards with a Pro-Guide!

On this hike, you will discover in an impressive way why the Cinque Terre are so special: it is not a wild natural landscape but a cultural landscape that has been created during centuries of work by the inhabitants.

The Tour

With huge effort they built dry stone walls along the steep coast in order to grow wine on the terraces.

From Manarola we climb up vertical steps through the vineyard terraces until we reach the small village of  Volastra

The trail continues through the spectacular terraced landscape, always with views over the coastline. After an equally steep descent we reach the village of Corniglia, the smallest village of the Cinque Terre.
