Corniglia is the only town of the 5 that does not have a port... which means, its located on a hilltop! To get to the town centre, if you are coming by train, you will have to climb for a good 10-15mins up the stairs.. and mind you, its non stop stairs. Hence, consider taking a bus up. The better...

There are actually 2 ways up/down to Corniglia: the steps or street. When we arrived from the train station, we followed a couple in front of us and ended up on the street path which was actually nice because it winds through some vineyards. Our previous times here we have either hiked in/out or done the steeps so this was... More

Without any doubts Italy can be named one of the amazing places to travel, especially if you appreciate different kinds of activity and their emotional component what is significant for most. To reach Corniglia may seem by far more challenging than it really is. We'd been planning to begin our acquaintance with Cique Terre from Riomaggiore strolling through the path... More

The climb looks hard. About 400 steps is a lot but when you actually do it, its not as tough as it seems. The steps are not steep and easy on the knees. The locals use this everyday. The other choice is to use the shuttle which means one needs to spend more time waiting. Anyways Corniglia is in my... More

Although 380+steps at least the steps are shallow and regular. Great views on the way down but I did chicken out and catch the bus up. Can't agree with an earlier reviewer who said Corneglia was the least interesting. Stayed there for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Just the right mixture of quiet but still enough to...

Corniglia is the most beautiful of the Cinque Terre and after you stop in the train station there are two ways to "climb" to the village, the "scalinata" and a bus. I recommend the bus to go on and the scalinata to return... the stair itself is not an attraction.

When you start these steps famous as they are , you don't imagine they will ever end , you just go on and on and finally arrive at the top . Is it worth the climb ...yes , if you survive it is. Not recommended for physically challenged people , they say you can lose about a thousand calories an... More

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... :)

All the villages are amazing in cinque terre and the trails going to each village are well worth doing. The 370 steps up was a great challenge to do and started off our big hike to the other villages. Don't bypass it!
