lavori manarola 3Yes, things in the phots do still exits at the  Cinque Terre. And it may also happen to see them. Not for granted, but possible to try. Before the package tours groups arrive!

Do you want to couple a sight of the terraces of the Manarola valley and some other places, with a taste of “mundane” life”?

If you are around for a week end, you are more than welcome, see the program: a part is with me, the rest is free. The program is for everybody, so spoken in Italian, but, since we have time, there will be also space for English translation !

Guided itinerary. Meeting place: Manarola, church square, 9.30 a.m.

You can often read about “breath taking views” and similar amenities…. In reality, I can guarantee that this intinerary will give you breath, and not take; you will want to breath it all ! Well, maybe that a bit of your breath will be taken by some steep ascent, but we will afford them at adequate pace.

Kind of itinerary

Thesa are affrodable itineraries, requiring however a minimum hiking practice. Some parts are very steep and with mountain trail characteristics. Teen agers may attend, if accompanied by a responsible adult. About children, evaluate yourself: if they are acquainted to walk, they may do, and enjoy.


This is what you must have with you: your personal backpack, with what you personally need; water, according to your needs: given thìe kind of itinerary, I would say that half a litre per person is enough. Hiking shoes, with sculptured sole. Hat. Clothes: if weather will help, we can stay very light; however, I invite to be on the safe side and bring what could be necessary: T-shirt, long sleeve shirt or light pile; thicker pile; waterproof jacket.


At the start. Please bring change cash. I will release a receipt.

To organised hiker groups

Besides this program, you may ask for tailor made itineraries in any moment, in all the areas of the Ligurian east and northernm Apennine.
