We were planning on a "rest day" from hiking between the villages and decided to take a short hike to the sanctuary. It was a bit more rigorous than we planned but a very nice hike. Lots of steep inclines but great stunning views. We...More

We walked the path which was steep, just walk the road! Great views all the way up! The cemetery is well cared for and interesting. There is a bench outside where you can sit and look at the harbor as well as mountain vineyards. Just...More

You can get to this fascinating cemetery either by road or stone stairs. I would recommend the narrow cement road. The cemetery is fairly extensive, mostly electrified with pictures and dates. I found it culturally different and compelling. The views on the way up are...More

This is a nice alternative walk from the crowded and costly Blue trail. At Il Pirata cafe turn left and follow the signs up the hill past the old church bell and cemetery. It is a steep, steady climb- no stairs just stone paving so...More

The Santuario of the Madone di Reggio is on the hightest point with a splendid view around, there is also a little cimetary so quite, a wild landscape around; there are some chairs and you can have a drink.

We took a hike along this trail, that was easy, interesting and also informative. It took us past little Trattoria that we stopped in to get a bite with folks who spoke no English, and that is well worth the hike, along with the views...More

A beautiful, peaceful place to pay respect to those who built walls, grew grapes and made Vernazza what it is. Tough walk, but worth it.

We hike the Sanctuary Trail, past the town cemetery (which was interesting with great views) to reach the Sanctuary. It was peaceful, serene and the church was beautiful. If you have a car, you can zip in here and visit, but reaching it by the...More
