WALKING THE COAST Cinque Terre, Italy
This issue is filled to the gills with great walks (see p24) but there’s always more to discover, as publisher Gestalten’s new
Wanderlust book shows. Snappy title aside (no relation), the book’s also where this image of Italy’s clifftop Manarola village comes from. Taken from the Sentiero Azzurro – the sun-dappled route that winds the towns of Cinque Terre – this is said to be ‘the longest day walk in the world’; it only spans 7km but such is the scenery and food along the way, it can take days to complete. Sadly, much of the walk’s eastern section is closed due to landslides, but alternative routes (including those around Manarola) still afford some heart-in-mouth views, as seen here.
