» The Blue Path
It runs parallel with the coast connecting the five villages from Monterosso to Riomaggiore.
It is somewhere narrow, in some places uphill, sometimes also tiring, but it's amazingly panoramic. It's universaly known and in every season it's crossed by a great number of tourists from all over the world..
The running time of the Blue Path is about 5 hours:
It goes between Monterosso and Corniglia at an average altitude of about 100 mt. over the sea, then it exceeds the dizzy and steep cliffs and again it goes up an down among the terraced villages.
On this track, not far from Vernazza on the way to Corniglia, you'll find "the Hermitage over the Sea".
The Blue Path passes through the incredible architecture formed by the terraces that run along more than 11.000 Km. (yes, you read right: eleven thousand!) like steps of huge pyramids rising from the sea created by the titanic work of uncountalble generations.
