  3. Hello everybody, just want to invite you and your readers to our site about the cinque terre italy
    and to the blog where you can also vote the nicest of the 5 Terre.
    Also online a section about Video of the Cinque Terre, a different point of view..

  4. Thanks Andrew for the information. Where does the easiest walk start from in the Cinque Terre?

  5. Sorry, I did'nt read this I hope I'm not too late.
    There're several possibilities, for the ones who want to make the whole "blue path" number 2 ( the most "commercial") the easiest is to start from Riomaggiore toward Manarola and Corniglia, than Vernazza and Monterosso, these two are the heaviest parts.
    For the High path number 1 (recommended for strong hikers), the easiest is to start from Levanto, in this direction the first up-slope is smooth.
    There're also short hikes such as the Via dell'Amore (Manarola - Riomaggiore 20 minutes) and a short walk around Manarola ( 15-20 minutes) that can, alone, show the beauty of these landscape, in complete relax, without being heavy hikers..
