(Manarola - Sede Parco Cinque Terre, 16 Jul 19) White and red. New trail markers on the final section of trail n. 502, marked yesterday by the Italian Alpine Club. This section was officially inserted in the REL (Ligurian Excursion Network), with a variant, trail n. 502c, that leads to the marina of Manarola. The extreme verticality of trail n. 502, which allows one to start from the sea of Manarola and reach the woods of the Alta Via of the Cinque Terre, makes it breathtaking and at the same time suitable only for expert hikers.
