Overview

This is a very urban run largely on paved trails, but is a great intro run.
Features: Swimming — Views

Need to Know

There are water taxis and a bus that service Portofino/Santa Margherita, so if you don't feel up to an out-and-back trip, you can run this as a point-to-point. Most towns in the Cinque Terre area are serviced by a combination of bus, train, and/or water taxi, which enables interesting one-way runs.

Description

This well-marked and well-traveled trail connects Santa Margherita Ligure with Portofino. It can be done as a one-way run with a return via water taxi or bus, or as a return trip on foot as well. The path is mostly paved or stone. Along the way, you pass many beaches (some with public access) and opportunities to take photos of the splendid countryside.

Flora & Fauna

Olive trees line portions of the trail.
