Other paths

Tappe Sentieri

The three main paths, the Sentiero di Crinale (path of the Crest), that of the Santuari and l’Azzurro (Blue Path), are only the most important itineraries of the Cinque Terre. They are in fact intersected by dozens of secondary mule-tracks which come up from the sea and cross the sea side of the mountains, until going over the other side of the mountain to reach La Spezia and the Val di Mar behind. Mule-tracks which split up into two or three different alternatives, so as to create a wide web of pedestrian roads. Many important and known are also the paths which can be found at the boundaries of the Cinque Terre, like the prolonged path no. 1, which links the territory of the Park to the villages of Levanto on the west and to Portovenere to the east. Or like the pedestrian circuit of the Palmaria, the main island of the small arcipelago which rises in front of Portovenere.
