These trails are very confusing and unfortunately you have to work it out for yourself. There seems to be a small section of this open, near the road tunnel and bridge between Riomaggiore and Manarola. Photo attached

Trail’s not open at the moment! Train or bus is the only option between towns. Riomaggiore is pleasant, not especially interesting.

As the word was that the trial is closed I opted for the train. The village of Manarola is stunning! It was on my bucket list of must see destinations, and it did not disappoint. Stunning scenery.

Riomaggiore, this town is more recent than the others of Cinque Terra; also like Manarola, it was founded around the end of the 12th century following immigration towards the coast by the inhabitants of Montenero; Here the first settlements were made in the 7th century...More

Both the footpath and hiking trail are closed between Riomaggiore and Manarola. The only alternative is a 3 hour hike, which is too much in this heat with children. We will need to take the train to see Manarola. Very disappointing.

It depends which trail you take. If you take the blue trail (the touristy one) you will probably be fine. If you decide to hike up the mountain it might be better to wear hiking boots, even though I've seen people up there... More

Yes there is at least one. I think there are more than that though. Once you get to the area go buy your trail pass at the booth (near the train station ) and the people there can give you the alternate routes. I am 61 years... More
