The trip Portofino And The Cinque Terre starts from and ends in Camogli. It is a walking trip that takes 8 days taking you through Vernazza, Riva Trigoso, Framura and 10 other destinations in Italy. Portofino And The Cinque Terre is a self-guided trip that includes accommodation, meals and others.

Follow the Ligurian coastline on foot from the Portofino peninsula to Portovenere via the Cinque Terre. Italy's Cinque Terre, a series of five small fishing villages dug into the cliffs where the Apennine Mountains meet the Mediterranean coastline, is one of the country's most spectacular sections of coast. This trip provides you with the opportunity to follow the entire coast, from the Portofino peninsula to the colourful town of Portovenere in the south, which will allow you to experience the five famed villages, Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, as well as the chance to get away from the busier villages to encounter the delights of the lesser known Camogli, Bonassola, Deiva Marina, Framura and Levanto. Following well marked footpaths and mule tracks, each day your walks along the coastal footpaths of the Ligurian Riviera will entertain you with panoramic vistas of the emerald blue Mediterranean Sea, views of lush vineyards and olive groves while inland there are dense pine and chestnut forests waiting to be discovered. Of course, there are also scenic vantage points to admire the colourful villages that make this part of Italy so popular with travellers.

“This trip is honestly one of the greatest things I've ever done. The scenery was absolutely spectacular and by the end of the 7 days everyone was like family. As a young solo traveler I was pretty nervous about going but all my fears were gone within an hour of leaving Chamonix. The refuges were adorable and the food was filling and delicious. You won't regret going on this trip!”

“Our guide Jorge and our bus driver Jesus, were exceptional in looking after us. Jorge was a wealth of knowledge and explained lots of things along the way. Jesus had us organized every morning and night and kept an eye on us in case we went the wrong way when we were coming into towns. I was a little disappointed at times when there wasn't a place at our table for Jesus to sit at. Our group looked after each other, which I am sure was due to our leaders.”
