The most popular Cinque Terre trails

When it comes to popularity among the tourists, four stretches of the Azure Trail are uppermost, because they are short, easy to hike and take the least time to do it. Still, long-distance strolls by the Cinque Terre hillsides have its own enchantment (please see “Popular long-distance trails - Details with the map”).

Visiting the hiking trails in the Cinque Terre with a baby carriage or wheelchair

The shortest part of the Azure Trail, which is called the Path of Love, is the only trail which is suitable for a stroll with a baby carriage or a wheelchair. In contrast, you will have to overcome hills and through narrow passages while walking the other trails, that's a given. Outside the Cinque Terre, in Levanto town, there is a specially constructed pedestrian tunnel for baby carriages and wheelchairs. The tunnel itself does not consist of concrete walls only, but there are entrances to open spaces with breath-taking coastline views. It takes only four minutes to get to Monterosso from Levanto by train.
