Trail Mark: red stripe on a white stripe
The footpath Monterosso Vernazza leaves from the eastern part of the town of Monterosso, in the hamlet of Fegina. Going outside from the railway station go along the seafront to the left, cross the tunnel boarding the sea, pass by the small beach and reach the other part of it nearby a restaurant: here the pedestrian road leading to a hotel begins. In the surroundings of the hotel continue to the right going down through some steps. After a short walk on the plain, a staircase and another flat stretch you reach the checkpoint for the Park tickets, where you have to buy them if you are unsupplied. The price is Euro 3, 00. After that, the path begins with a long staircase crossing vineyards and citrus orchards. The rash walkers being able to finish the climb will enjoy a wonderful panorama over Monterosso.
footpath continues flat, but in some parts it is very narrow and without
protection on the side of sea. When you cross people coming from the opposite
side of the road you have to search the right position to let them pass. It is
absolutely not dangerous but you have to
be a little bit careful, especially with children. Some parts are broad and
peaceful, and you can always enjoy a wonderful panorama over the sea. The
footpath passes on a small stone-bridge, which is really worth a picture. You
can begin to see Vernazza in the distance, and the view of the coast is really
unforgettable. To relax a little bit you can find also a wooden table rich in
inscriptions with two benches in a very panoramic position. When the trail
begins to go down, the view of Vernazza is really breathless. The path continues
to go down among olive trees and cultivated fields until you reach the ticket
checkpoint, then it enters into the town along the small lanes and ends between
the small harbour on the right and the railway station on the left. In the last
part you can decide to turn left among the houses and through a steep staircase
you arrive nearby the Church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia.
