We have not visited all 5 of the towns but my impression was they are all seaside villages clustered around tiny harbours. That puts the train station pretty much at the same level as each town. Wrong. Corneglia is a classic hill top village. No port. And that puts it about 100 m above the level of the RR station... More

This endless seem stair offers you a wonderful view of the sea and of the trail to Manarola.If you want to walk on this trail is better to start in Corniglia and arrive in Manarola.This way you won't need to climb all the over 300 steps.Going downstairs is far easier... :)

The train stops less frequently at this village than some of the others which... More

Leaving the train station of Corniglia this famous staircase is 200 meters far away from it and is clearly visible from the outside of the station. This staircase is a physical test quite challenging, especially during summertime when the heat is extreme. All in all it's really picturesque and exciting at the same time as climbing the stairs I often... More
