Explore Cinque Terre on this guided hike and Try the pesto pasta in Corniglia


This trip is the best way to get to know the Cinque Terre Park in one day only, in a different prospective: by train, boat and on feet.

You will get to know the villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore with their local cuisine, the pasta topped with the freshest pesto sauce or fish of the day.

Experience the trails, through century old olive groves and vineyards, connected before the railway was created. Embarking on a moderate minimum 2-hour hike from Vernazza to Corniglia, tracing one of the most spectacular trails in the area.
This seaside walk offers stunning views of the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

Lunch is enjoyed at a local restaurant in Corniglia ( located on a promontory is the only village without sea access. Unlike the other villages within the Park with seafaring pasts, quaint Corniglia has a history linked to agriculture), or in Manarola in a local trattoria with sea view.

After lunch, time permitting; we continue our visit southward by boat or train.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a magical day! Angelica was a fabulous guide for three of us. She made our excursion a memorable experience and had everything timed to the minute. Getting us train tickets in advance on a very confusing system was extremely helpful, no stress day. She even ordered blue skies and sunshine for us :) If you want to understand the Cinque Terre area and see what each city has to offer then you must tour with Angelica. We got to see four of the five cities in just a day. We'd book her again, no question!
