Corniglia is a very small but neat spot. Walk around, imagine famers of the old days with their animals, goods etc. Very nice stroll exploring.

But pretty just as the others. Be quick off the train and make your way up the steps of the train station to the main road and catch the free bus into town..Save those feet.

This is the only main village which is on a hill and that makes it pleasantly different to the others. Enchanting little streets and alleys to wander around and good views of the sea. Easy to get to on the Cinque Terre train.

We visited 4 out of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre. This was, according to myself, the most picturesque one if we’re talking about the streets. Not the easiest one to get to though - you have to climb 300 steps to get there but...More

Set more away from the coastline than its neighbours, there is a slightly different feel. Walking in from Vernazza was tiring, a lengthy and challenging walk, it earns our gelato and gave us an early view of this village holding onto the cliff. It felt...More

We love Corniglia for its narrow streets and very creative and artistic shops, a great place to visit, shop, eat, and relax.

Corniglia is an excellent place to stay and see in the Cinque Terre. If you want the view and not as many tourists, stay here (I would rent a flat) and visit the other "terre" by train--and boat or by trail. You will walk many...More

You can't go wrong just hiking around. We walked to Monterosso and took the train back on one day and Riomaggiore on another. There is a shuttle bus from the station to Corniglia but you need to buy tickets in the station... More
