European Vacation – September 20/19 – Via dell’Amore, (Cinque Terre) Italy – Incomplete Love

Cinque Terre is known for its breathtaking hikes between the 5 villages. The Via dell’Amore (the Love Trail) is one of the easiest hikes. It runs between Riomaggiore and Manarola. The path has been closed since 2012, due to falling rocks.

Not what Paul Simon meant by “Love Me Like a Rock”.

Parts of this walk are still open, but you can not do the whole trail. On our hiking day, we had just missed our train and used our waiting time to wander down the portion of this path near the station. I can understand why it would be so popular.

Beautiful pathway

between seaside villages.

Love closed for repair.

    1. Given that is has languished since 2012, I do not see a quick resolution to this one. Perhaps a $2/head tourist tax?? Who knows. The upper trails are superb, so maybe keeping this one closed will help control the hordes of tourists that visit each year. Thanks for reading Bernie.. Allan

  1. Beautiful photos and beautiful coastal scenery, that usually attracts hordes of tourists! I hope they gonna find some sort of solution as it’s been years, would be lovely to do the whole length of the walk. Thanks for sharing, Allan and have a lovely festive season 😊 Aiva
