Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
The trek begins at 8:30am in the center of the village in Riomaggiore. You will walk up hill through the village onto the old Mule trail. The tour involves hiking through vineyards and old rusticos on the climb to the Santuario di nostra signora di Montenero with clear views of the villages below and a sweeping panorama of the sea and view of the trek's final destination. You will then continuing on a small path reaching elevations of almost 500 meters above sea level, on and off a road leading along the ridge and through the forest.
The final hike leads down to Portovenere alongside the historic Doria Castle, with views of St. Peter's church out on the rocky point, and nearby Lord Byron's Cove.
This hike takes 6-7 hours and allows plenty of time to explore Portovenere, its shops, and its stunning views. The trek ends with a boat ride back to Riomaggiore and views of the trails just hiked from a vantage point of the sea.
