Stunning views and fresh sea breeze

This time, I tried to enter from Manarola. The entrances of the Path of Love in both towns are near the station and there are many signs, so you can find quickly. At the entrance please show the "Cinque Terre Card" to get free admission. Now, let's start.
Soon you'll be on the high cliff. The beautiful cobalt blue sea spreads beneath, and the other side is high rocks wall. On a sunny day it's really nice. Everyone is smiling taking photos.

The journey takes approximately 30 minutes. The path is very walkable

Some of the Cinque Terre trails are like hiking courses among the rocks. However, this "Path of Love" is paved and very walkable. Low-heeled pumps should be okay. The ocean side is also protected by fall prevention fences so it's safe also for families with kids.
The journey takes about 30 minutes, the time will quickly pass while taking photos and walking. Oh, there are some people with their dogs, too.

The Path of Love is a place for local couples!

The "Path of Love" was constructed from the 1920s through the 1930s. And 1990s, it became more dangerous and some parts are closed. It's said that since the local lovers were enjoying dating to admire the beautiful panorama here, the name of the "Path of Love" started to be used. It's not sure if this origin is true or not, but the breathtaking beauty is still real.
