Take a detour on the “Terzo Binario” in Riomaggiore

  1. Great article! this along with your other articles have been most helpful. I was planning on hiking from Vernazza to Riomaggiore then taking a boat back to Monterosso. Since this path is closed will I be able to continue from Manarola to Riomaggiore by foot? or will I have to take other means of transportation? if so, what? or is it simply best to cut my hike short and head back to Monterosso by boat from manarola? any help is greatly appreciated and again thanks for sharing your knowledge!


    1. Ciao Bee!

      Thanks! I’m happy that you’ve found the blog helpful. 🙂

      Will you be staying in Monterosso? You can hike the two sections of the coastal trail that are open (Monterosso to Vernazza and then Vernazza to Monterosso, remember the hiking pass is required for these two portions). The remainder of the coastal trail is closed (Corniglia to Manarola and Manarola to Riomaggiore). You can hike (free of charge, no pass required) between Corniglia and Manarola on the alternate route that heads through the tiny village of Volastra (this hike is beautiful and I recommend it!). At the moment I think the easiest thing will be to hop on a train or ferry to connect between Manarola and Riomaggiore. After having a look around you can head back to Monterosso by ferry or train. 🙂
