I recently returned from Hiking the Amalfi Coast (actually the trip was titled "Walking") which was quite strenuous but wonderful. I would like to know how the hikes in the Italian Lakes and/or the Cinque Terre compare to those on the Amalfi Coast. Thanks.
I'm going to Cinque Terre in October and it's rated as "Active". Last year's Taormina trip was rated "active " as well. I had no problem even though I had a hip replacement 3 months prior to the trip.
I'm a bit worried about the October trip as the terrain looks much MUCH steeper.
I'd also like to read some feedback for this area.

I have to agree with you regarding the difficulty of the hikes. I have hiked in several areas: White Mountains, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Yosemite etc. BUT I found the trails in Cinque Terre very challenging. The 400 steps was easy compared to the stone steps on the trails. There was an injury on the trail during our trip and we also saw a hiker that had to be air lifted off the trail. It was a fabulous trip and our guide was wonderful but I would agree there should be a stronger warning. This was my first RS experience and I am hesitant to take another.
