The well-known “Via dell'amore” is a hiking trail that is very appreciated from climbers and trekkers throughout the world. Perhaps the most famous part of the Cinque Terre, Via dell'amore is the section of the Blue Trail (the stretch that connects Riomaggiore and Monterosso) that extends for 1 km between Riomaggiore and Manarola.
The trail has a magical atmosphere: seems to be dug in the hard rock of the ligurian coast and winds along the rocky wall overhanging the sea. The history of the path of the Way of Love dates back to the beginning of the TWENTIETH century during the modernization of the railway line Genoa - La Spezia, when railway workers were in need of a path to move between Riomaggiore and Manarola during the construction of the tunnel between the two villages. Legend has it that this footpath became a meeting point for lovers of the two cities.
The Way of Love is today the most famous for tourists visiting the Cinque Terre. Today it is a pedestrian path on the flat, not suitable so much for a trip or for a pleasant walk that offers spectacular views on the cliffs, the vineyards and the sea. To access it, you need to pay an entrance ticket.
Monterosso Cinque Terre is the village's most well-known among the five municipalities of the Park of the Cinque Terre, as well as the most densely inhabited. It is located at the center of a small natural bay in the western part of the Cinque Terre. Built on the ruins of an ancient settlement of pre-roman times, the village dates back to the IX century, in the medieval era and still has monuments dating back to that time.
