A complete traverse of the entire Cinque Terre region. The idea is to do Alta Via (the high trail) but then drop down to all 5 towns and back up to Alta via before getting to the next one. The Alta Via is the historical trail connecting towns. Some guidelines on the route:
-The end points are Portovenere and the train station at Monterosso.
-Dropping down to Riomaggiore and Manarola you should go to the water's edge.
-At Corniglia you should visit the terrazza panoramica di Santa Maria
-The lower trail is acceptable between Corniglia and Vernazza, where you should again visit the water's edge.
-From Vernazza climb back up to the Alta Via and pass over Monte Soviore and Monte Negro before dropping down to Monterosso.
Great effort Laura! Congratulations!
