4 tourists injured by rock slide on le Cinque Terre trail

Jump to last reply

Four tourists were injured yesterday, one seriously, when very large boulders fell on them while they were walking the flat path between Manarola and Riomaggiore, the so-called via dell'Amore. Although parts of that path are protected overhead by concrete, this section was not.

The park director was quoted saying that they worried that the rainy season, now just starting in le Cinque Terre, would increase the dangers of more rocks falling.

People who travel there should not walk on the paths EVER if it is raining, or start out on a hike if the weather forecast is for rain. If signs indicated trails are closed, even in dry weather, do not walk on them for your own safety.
