Corniglia is the only 5terre town not right on the water. But that gives us the opportunity walk these 381 stairs up to the town - it was not strenuous at all, a pleasant hike with great views of the water, station and vineyards below....More

Corniglia often skips due to its location. Is the only village of the five which not easily accessible from the train station. There is a bus service outside if you're lucky this brings you to the village. Check the timetable before. The second option is...More

The stairs leading up to the village are switchbacks, fairly low and easy for anyone who doesn’t have a walking difficulty. The village at the top may not be the prettiest of the five, but it starts two of our favourite walks - the one...More

These stairs are elongated, so not as tough as many of the flights of steps you encounter in the Cinque Terre. There is a bench (maybe two) along the way, and the views are great. However, to really enjoy it, I suggest taking the shuttle...More

These steps just minutes away from the train station is a nice challenge for many. I just wished the reward at the top is equally worth it. Corniglia is my least favorite land in all of Cinque Terre. We train hopped to each of the...More
