On this page you will find updated information about all open and closed hiking trails between the Cinque Terre villages.

The hiking trails are open all year around. During the winter months, from November until the beginning of April, the hiking trails are free of charge. After heavy rain, especially during the winter months, some trails can be closed due to maintenance work. There are always alternative trails open. For example, the Levanto - Monterosso, Manarola - Volastra - Corniglia trails and the higher trails are always open.

Upon arrival, please contact one of the Cinque Terre tourist offices for more information about alternative trails.
