The track from Monterosso to Vernazza is not a long distance but it is up and over a couple of mountains . So it is not for the unfit as it is arduous - but the coastal scenery is magnificent. Originally the track was for villagers harvesting their mountain crops. Grapes, lemons, tomatoes, olives and capsicum (bell peppers) are grown on terraces on the steep mountain sides. This picture is of Vernazza.
