Guided Day Hike #1: the Cinque Terre National Park from Vernazza to Monterosso

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

An exciting guided tour with an expert nature and hiking guide to the discovery of the beauties of the Cinque Terre National Park.

The guide we propose you will take you from Vernazza to Monterosso following a nice and less frequented trail.

The Tour

Our tour begins in the picturesque village of Vernazza.

We start here early in the morning before the day visitors arrive. The path leads us quickly uphill past impressive terraced vineyards.

Finally, we reach a beautifully situated St. Mary’s Church, where an 800-year-old cypress stands.

We continue on a narrow path through the fragrant Mediterranean scrub, always with great views.

We reach another St. Mary’s sanctuary, Madonna di Soviore, one of the oldest churches in Liguria.

The shady forecourt and a small bar invite you to rest. On a former pilgrim path we descend through forest and cultivated land until we reach the centre of Monterosso.
