The Hills of Cinque Terre

Riomaggiore Hills and Train Station

Riomaggiore July 17, 2012

Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places in the world and thousands of people have come and gone, just to walk up and down the Via dell’Amore. They run as fast as they can to get to each village from point A to B, just to take a photo. But this is place to slow down and see the beauty all around you, get to understand how the rock formation was caused, where the people lived during the war, what type of work was done here and how huge the vineyards were at one time. Grab some fruit, bread, cheese, sliced meats and a bottle of Cinque Terre wine, then trek up to a great vantage point, sit down and take in the beauty that is all around you.

It is good to know someone who can tell you what your looking at and take you to places that are not on the beaten path. One of the main reason I started this business, was to share my knowledge of the area. This way you get some insight in what you are seeing. I trek some of these trails 3 days in a row and I always find something different to look at. So find your way to Cinque Terre and come with me to discover it.





  1. Hi Pall,

    Deborah and I had a great time in Cinque Terre, and our all-day trek with you was probably the highlight of our two-week vacation through northern Italy.

    You are definitely knowledgeable about the area; hiking alone without some of the history would not have been the same.

    Thanks again for showing us what most travelers never see – and thanks for arranging for our room in Riomaggiore!

    To all: if you go anywhere near this place, please look Pall up. You won’t regret it.

    All the best,
    John Page and Deborah Piram
    San Jose, CA
