Alternative Hiking Itinerary: Corniglia to Manarola
As a Private Cinque Terre Trekking Tour, we can customize this itinerary to suit your requirements. Consider an alternative route from Corniglia to Manarola via Volastra, where you can enjoy a scenic trek among the vineyards and an optional wine tasting. This hike is more difficult than the one suggested with an elevation gain of 1300 ft (400 meters) and a flight of steps (1200) at the start of the walk. As you traverse this breathtaking trail, you'll witness farmers tending to olive and grape trees amidst the arid landscapes of Manarola and Corniglia. Over 2000 years ago, Volastra was known as Vicus Oleaster, signifying 'the village of olive groves'.

After the hike, you'll have free time for an optional lunch and exploring the quaint village of Manarola. If you're eager to indulge in exquisitely crafted local specialties, just let us know, and we'll reserve a table at a restaurant where each dish is a culinary masterpiece, complemented by breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and coastline. On our second optional Cinque Terre Hiking Tour, we can also arrange a visit to Vernazza for a morning coffee, provided you're willing to embark on the journey around 6:30 am. If you're interested in this option, please reach out to our Sales Team for a personalized quotation.
