Walking trail reopens in Monterosso-al-Mare

The idyllic Via delle Agavi, which connects the waterfront with the cemetery and the statue of St Francis in Monterosso-al-Mare, has reopened to the public after being closed for two years.

monterosso_al_mare3.jpgThe Cinque Terre is the perfect destination in Italy for those that enjoy walking in nature as there are plenty of pretty trails to explore along this famous stretch of coastline. In the past, one of the most popular walking trails was along Via delle Agavi in Monterosso-al-mare; however, two years ago it closed to the public due to a landslide.

We are pleased to announce that, after careful restorative works under the watch of the Cinque Terre National Park, Via delle Agavi  reopened to the public in late October 2017, allowing visitors to enjoy this beautiful path connecting the waterfront with Monterosso’s cemetary and the intriguing statue of St Francis.

The works are estimated to have cost nearly €170,000 and feature containment walls and reinforcements to protect from future landslides, as well as steel parapets and parapet grids to secure the area. There has also been a substantial effort to create a haven for wildlife by clearing invasive weeds and planting flowerbeds and Mediterranean shrubs to encourage butterflies, bees and other wildlife, making this the perfect Cinque Terre walking path for nature lovers.
