Hello! I’ll be visiting the Cinque Terre this September and would really appreciate some hike suggestions. I’m young and fairly fit, but definitely don’t do a lot of hiking and want to stick to well populated paths. The most important things to me are #1) Good photo ops, and #2) Safety. I have been scared away from the Vernazza – Monterosso hike because of the bit about “very dangerous” and “narrow”.
I’ve read the descriptions in Rick’s Italy book and it seems like the Riomaggiore – Manarola hike, and Corniglia – Vernazza hike seem to fit these needs.
Can anyone whose done theses two hikes attest to the fact that they aren’t very dangerous or narrow? Or would anyone recommend a different hike? Thank you!!
