Self-guided walk and rail tour - Portofino, The Cinque Terre & Portovenere
×

Highlights

  • Wandering ancient trails past flower-filled meadows, vineyards and olive groves
  • Exploring the colourful UNESCO World Heritage villages of the Cinque Terre
  • The flexibility of walking or taking the train to explore village to village
  • The stylish atmosphere of harbour-side Portofino; people-watching with a caffè freddo
  • Staying in the charming medieval town of Portovenere
  • Breath-taking views of the azure Mediterranean sea, and enjoying a cool dip!

A spectacular in-depth journey on foot and by rail, exploring Italy’s glamorous Portofino, together with two UNESCO World Heritage gems; the Cinque Terre National Park with its five classic colourful fishing villages, and the lovely Portovenere.

The Ligurian coast, known as bella Italia’s ‘Flower Riviera’, will captivate you with its unique coastal and forest trails, where you’ll walk or take short train rides from village to village, admiring the cobalt blue sea and colourful collections of houses that cling to the cliff faces. Revel in the region’s delicious cuisine, washed down with excellent local wines from the region’s terraced vineyards— this tour will delight foodies and keen walkers alike.

Your trip begins on the Portofino peninsula, staying in the traditional fishing harbour of Camogli, from where you can visit the impressive San Frutuoso Abbey— located in a beautiful cove and reached only by boat or on foot, as well as the lighthouse ‘Il Faro’ which gives spectacular views of the Mediterranean and Ligurian Seas. You’ll continue on foot to iconic Portofino, where you can relax at the harbour with a chilled caffè freddo.

Continue with a walk through the hills of the East Riviera, staying overnight at Bonassola with its laid-back beach, before continuing south along the coastline to Monterosso. Set amidst terraces of olive groves and vines, Monterosso is the largest of the five villages of the Cinque Terre. Enjoy a choice of coastal or mountain walks through vineyards and fragrant pine and chestnut forests. Alternatively, make use of your two-day rail pass, or simply relax under a colourful beach umbrella.

Visit the town of Riomaggiore, the most southerly of the Cinque Terre villages, dating from the 8th Century and characterised by sorbet-coloured houses perched on slate grey cliffs. Your walking tour finishes in the lovely medieval fishing town of Portovenere, on the Gulf of Poets. No wonder this area inspired such literary greats such as Byron and DH Lawrence.

DAY 1: Arrive Camogli

Your Italian journey begins in the charming small fishing village of Camogli, situated on the west side of the Portofino peninsula. Camogli is easily reached with good train connections from Genoa or Pisa (and Florence is also an option).


If you have time when you arrive, visit the historic centre and embrace the relaxed seaside ambience of Camogli, with its fantastic fresh seafood and colourful houses. 


Overnight: Hotel La Camogliese**, Camogli


The following hotels are available at a supplement: Hotel Augusta** or Hotel Casmona***, Camogli


You may be accommodated (according to availability) at one of the above small hotels, all of which offer a warm welcome to walkers and are conveniently close to the beach.


DAY 2: Walk to Portofino via San Fruttuoso

You’ll be picked up this morning from your hotel at Camogli for a private transfer to the village of San Rocco. Start your walk with a visit to the San Fruttuoso Abbey, located in a secluded bay overlooking cobalt-blue waters. From here you can choose to walk or take a ferry to the chic town of Portofino (the latter is payable locally).


Enjoy the wonderful view from Il Faro (the Light House), located at the extreme point of the promontory, 1km from Portofino. A firm favourite with the celebrity ‘jet set’, this pretty town is famous for its picturesque harbour. From here you can take the train or boat back to Camogli (payable locally).

The first part of your walk to Framura is extremely panoramic with wonderful views over the northern Ligurian coast. You can always shorten your walk by finishing in Framura and returning to Bonassola by train.


On reaching the pretty little town of Deiva Marina, why not take a cooling dip in the ocean to celebrate a wonderful day’s walk.

The first part of today’s walk runs along an old railway track which has recently been transformed into a fairly flat cycle path. Walk through the tunnels and over the bridges whilst revelling in spectacular views over the azure sea and cliffs until you reach the idyllic painter’s paradise of Levanto, located in the centre of a charming valley surrounded by green hills.


As you reach the ridge top, pause to take in the sweeping views to the mountains which surround the ‘Gulf of Paradise’. Arriving at Punta Mesco you continue your descent towards the village of Monterosso.

DAY 5: Transfer to Soviore, walk to Monterosso via Vernazza

After a good breakfast, begin with a transfer to Soviore, thus avoiding the very steep section up an ancient cobbled path. On arrival in Soviore you can either stop to visit the local monastery or immediately begin your walk towards Vernazza.


Follow a panoramic path that gently descends to the Madonna di Reggio, a Sanctuary hidden in the hills behind the little town of Vernazza. From here continue walking on a stone path down to this pretty port full of colourful houses and old fishing boats, before taking the panoramic coastal path back to Monterosso.


To shorten the walk, you can stop in Vernazza if you wish, and take the train back to Monterosso.

Walk: 10km, 471m ascent, 448m descent, 4hrs approx.


Overnight: Hotel Marina***, Monterosso

From Colle del Telegrafo, follow the ridgeline until you reach Portovenere, passing through the village of Campiglia. Your final walk will be rewarded with great views over the Cinque Terre coastline and the impressive cliffs of Portovenere at the end.


The stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of Portovenere was a favourite of such literary greats as Byron, Shelley and DH Lawrence. Its photogenic San Pietro Church was built atop the remains of a 6th-century church, said to occupy the site of an ancient Roman temple to Venus.


Walk: 13km, 861m ascent, 875m descent, 6hrs approx.


Overnight: Hotel Paradiso, Portovenere

You will spend your first two nights in Camogli, in a good 2* hotel, the next night in Bonasosola at another lovely 3* property, then three nights at a charming family run 3* hotel in the heart of Monterosso and one night at a lovely 3* seafront hotel in Portovenere. Depending on availability we use, amongst others, the following hotels. Certain hotels are available at a supplement.

This small and charming family run 3 star hotel is located on a narrow street in the historic centre of the old fishing village of Monterosso.


 

 

 


 

 

 




Hotel Amici, Monterosso

Single Rooms

Single rooms are available but attract a supplement.


Solo Walkers

This is a great holiday for solo walkers. If you are travelling solo the holiday is slightly more expensive as some costs are not shared.


Availability

This tour is available to start any day of the week from April to October. Prices depend on the season.


Time of Year

The Cinque Terre is stunning year-round but the best times for walking are Spring and Autumn as the summer temperatures can be very high.


Single Rooms & Solo Walkers

If you require single rooms within your party we are happy to accommodate, although a single supplement is payable. Solo walkers are also welcome for a supplement.


Grade & Terrain

This holiday is graded easy to moderate because although the daily walks are relatively short (between three and seven hours walking each day) the terrain is very hilly and summer temperatures can be high. The walks follow ancient footpaths and mule tracks. Many are made up of steep stone staircases and some are literally cut into the cliff so if heights aren’t your thing this may not be the best trip for you. Some of the paths are very steep so you should be used to walking ascents to get the most from this holiday. Most of the walks can be shortened by using public transport and as you're not moving on each day all walks can be skipped.


Navigation, Route Notes & Maps

You will be following way marked trails for many of your walks and we supply very detailed route notes and maps so navigation is generally easy. PLEASE NOTE: Hydrogeological instability in the Cinque Terre region can at times cause the closure of certain sections of the trails. Before embarking on your daily walk please check with your accommodation and also if possible with go to the Cinque Terre National Park website.


Baggage Transfers

On Days 4 & 7 your bags will be transferred from your hotel and moved onto your next overnight accommodation. We ask you to keep your baggage to a maximum of 1 bag per person (maximum weight 20kg).


Meals

The delicious Italian food and wine available locally is undoubtedly a highlight of this holiday. The price of your holiday includes breakfast each morning. Lunch and dinner are not included so you are free to choose from the available options.


General Information

The distances and ascents/descents are approximations of the recommended routes. Please be prepared by packing all necessary items, for example proper rain gear (jacket and pants), sunhat, sunscreen. Your information pack has a detailed equipment list which includes standard walking gear such as good walking boots or shoes, warm and waterproof clothes for the cooler months and lightweight clothing for summer, and a daypack.

Are the walking trails open again following the flooding of October 2011?

There are still a few trails closed as a result of this flooding. However we have adapted our walking itineraries and on the walks that we include the trails are all open. Fortunately there are lots of choices! However due to the fact that this area can at times suffer from hydrogeological instability, it is always advisable that before setting out for your daily walk you check with your accommodations about possible trail closures and if possible also the Cinque Terre National Park website.

How fit do I need to be?

This walking holiday is graded easy to moderate and involves between three and seven hours of walking each day. On some days there is a choice of walks, or you can take a ferry or the train to shorten your walk. Some of the paths are very steep so you should be in pretty good shape to get the most from this holiday.  This tour is not suitable for those with a fear of heights, as some of the walks are along paths close to cliffs.

When is the best time of year?

Spring in the Cinque Terre is sublime! April, May and June are absolutely lovely. September and October are also lovely as the coast has that lazy late summer feeling. July and August can be busy and also extremely hot so you'll need to start out early and take plenty of water.

How do the baggage transfers work?

On Days 4 & 7 leave your bags at the hotel reception and your bags will be transferred from your hotel and moved onto your next overnight accommodation. We ask you to limit your luggage to one bag of up to 20kg per person.

How far in advance do I need to book?

We suggest you book as soon as your plans are finalised as this area is extremely popular. We will always try and accommodate your plans so just ask.

What personal equipment do I need?

You will need good walking shoes/boots, comfortable walking clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, a daypack and hats/gloves etc.

What happens if I can't walk a stage?

You can access all the locations really easily with public transport.

    We really enjoyed this adventure although we found some walks quite challenging.My husband and I are seniors who walk and hike a lot.Some sections were very steep and the constant stairs were exhausting.Some directions were confusing...On the walk from Soviore to Vanessa we walked 2 Km's on hard asphalt before we realized we had passed the Reggio turn.Our accommodations were all great and easy to locate. The pick up service was exactly on time and luggage details worked well.Not for the faint hearted and unfit!

        The five of us thoroughly enjoyed this walk. My four companions had never done a walk before so it tested out the knees of the two girls who had undergone bilateral knee reconstructions less than 2 years ago!!! Due to the multiple options this adventure offered one of them was able to utilise train and boat services on some days. The steep cliff drop/chains were a highlight (Day 1) enroute to San Fruttuosso. We didn't bother with the taxi transfer earlier that day as the walk to San Rosso was not difficult.

        The Cinque Terre hikes were as challenging as they were picturesque and each town in between was exciting to explore as well.

        The Macs Adventure package was the perfect midpoint between a personal tour guide and planning everything your own, this self guided model was better than I ever expected and one we plan to use going forward whenever we are outside our own country.

          Comments about macs adventure Portofino, The Cinque Terre & Portovenere:

          I've used Macs Adventures before (Complete Tour du Mont Blanc 2 years ago) and they are really well organized and pay attention to detail. I was really pleased with the upgrade that we chose in Camogli (Hotel Casmona has amazing private balconies overlooking the Mediterranean).
          However, whether this is a Macs' issue or whether it is the local tour operator whom they rely upon to give a fair assessment of trail difficulty, I believe that most of the trails rated at least a 3 out of 5 degree of difficulty. My spouse has had little hiking experience prior to this excursion and I was trying to choose an outing that wouldn't present a huge challenge for her but still provide the best of the hiking experience.
          The tour is represented as the Cinque Terre primarily with Portofino and Portovenere as add ons to it. In fact very little of the Cinque Terre was part of this tour. What we didn't realize is that 2/5 of the Cinque terre is inaccessible due to landslides and it has been in this state for some time. We found the directions provided for hiking confusing at times and, just to site an example, at a crossroads high up in the back country the instruction was to "go right uphill". In fact it should have read "go directly uphill". Ordinarily a sign marker indicating, in this case, "Monterosso" was missing and this would have served to unveil the mystery. That day we ended up in a location that was quite different than what we had anticipated.
          One day we chose an alternative shorter route (took the train from Bonassola to Levanto to cut out the tunnels along the coast) but there were no directions provided to the trail head from the train station and the locals didn't seem to know. Ultimately I used the Google Maps phone app to connect. More information for the alternative route would have been helpful. We lost an hour which ultimately left us exposed on the top of the mountain during an unanticipated thunder storm.
          Don't get me wrong however, Macs is a great company!

          Third time using Macs and again brilliant service.
          The trip was varied as we added extra days for relaxation and beach time.
          Some of the walks were very busy as this is a popular touristy destination.
          The weather was very hot most days, taking our camelbak was definatly the right call!
          This area is a beautiful part of the Italian Riviera with lots of offer.
          On the whole the hotels were great, Hotel Modema in Bonasola was our least favourite as they had no air con and the hotel was right next to the train line! Luckily we were only there one night, although I must say the staff were lovely and the outdoor breakfast area was a nice touch.
          Thanks to Erin and the rest of the rest of the team, Macs is a welcome well oiled machine who we can rely upon to supply a seamless service.

              Beautiful landscape and walk. Great food. The Albergo Marina in Monterosso, particularly wonderful (from service to breakfast, to their restaurant down the street). It is more a 3 boot walk than a 2 boot walk (some steep up and downs), so be forewarned!
              Food at Pensione Moderna (Bonassola) is also excellent.
              And of course....great gelato and wine everywhere you go:)
