Cinque Terre After the Flood
The flooding caused by violent storms on October 25, 2011 has left certain parts of the Cinque Terre inaccessible.
The good news is, the seaside trail #2 known as the Via dell’Amore has been reopened between Riomaggiore and Manarola.
Repair work and widespread cleaning is continuing throughout the Cinque Terre, and the situation should be returning to almost normal soon.
If you’ve delayed your trip to the Cinque Terre you might consider hiking elsewhere in Liguria. There are scores of challenging and beautiful trekking trails behind Genoa, in the extreme west of Liguria near the French border, and in the inland areas of Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure.
Please consult the articles archive on Wandering Liguria for more on the Cinque Terre, and check our Weather page for the latest.
Here is the Cinque Terre National Park’s enticing video, shot from the air, showing the beautiful coast and terraced hills of this extraordinary part of Italy. Within weeks or months you should be able to gain access to all the hiking trails you’ll see from above in this footage.
