The Sentiero Alto (high path) (no. 1) (the high path) is an old mule-track, perhaps dating back to Roman times, which runs along the ridge which separates the coast from the hinterland.
To each of these five villages of the Cinque Terre, halfway up the hill, corresponds a santuario (Sanctuary) to which the inhabitants have always been tied by profound devotion.
Path no. 2, more well known as the Sentiero Azzurro (Blue Path), is one of the most appreciated pedestrian routes of the whole peninsula, both because it does not present particular difficulties and for the many views given to the millions of walkers that walk there in all seasons of the year.
