Guided Walking Holidays Riviera Cinque Terre Look down on rocky coves where the sea meets steep cliffs, the fishing boats bob like corks out to sea. This is a land of history and poetry is the best medium to describe its unique beauty. Keats, Shelley and Byron were drawn here and found inspiration. With the sun on your back and the sea before you, you can perhaps experience something of what inspired them. The views they enjoyed are certainly little changed from their day.Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Portofino is renowned as a beautiful place frequented by beautiful people. Many choose to explore by other means, but how much better it is to stroll along little used paths through groves of olive and scrub oak. Perhaps stop at the village of San Fruttuoso then continue to Portofino harbour. A very different world from the one through which you have just walked. Time allows for a gelato and to gaze on those who chose a luxury yacht with cocktail bar, professional chef and sun deck. We think they have missed the best of the area. There are many paths through the Cinque Terre, some busy, some not. The quieter path is the best choice where the view of the flowers, the shade of the olive groves and the stunning sea views can best be enjoyed. The land here is steep but fertile. Local specialties include pesto, olives and grapes. Olive groves cover hill sides. In autumn our walks will be€companied by the sounds of farm labourers harvesting in time honoured fashion. On the steep slopes nearly everything still has to be done by hand.
