From our house the connection to the Cinque Terre paths is immediate, in many directions:
Trail on the mountain ridge
It divides the territory of the Cinque Terre and that of the Val di Vara, which is part of the ancient Via dei monti Liguri.
The paths on the ridge are free (no payment is needed)
Trails near the sea
Without going up the mountain you proceed on one side towards Riomaggiore and on the other towards Corniglia and then Vernazza and Monterosso.
This path (ex blue path) is subject to payment in the Corniglia-Vernazza-Monterosso sections.

The Cinque Terre host the Schiacchetrail race annually, a very demanding competition for athletes, but that is a celebration for the five countries.
The paths of the Cinque Terre were born for agricultural activity, to connect the villages, to transport materials with mules, to reach the sanctuaries. Taking a path is not just admiring the views, it is reliving the history of this area.
