Quite demanding climb - 450 m elevation gain in just 3 km. Amazing views, away from crowds. Nice church, I recommend the road for going down.

Problem with 'vacations,' in partularly 'guided trips' is you really don't get to just sit and smell the Roses. This is one of those Roses!

The five star rating is for the view. We climbed up from Montorosso. That is a pretty good climb, but lovely. Almost all of the hike is in shade.

Nice Sanctuary, a shrine place, the church is small and very pretty; she is on a height near the sea in Monterosso; a nice place for a walk.

Over 2 Hours up hill almost all steps. Very challenging but very rewarding! Gorgeous views and a beautiful historic Montessori. Walk downhill towards Vernassi twice as difficult!
