From the station to the village, you have to climb up these stairs. I think there is a shuttle bus that is able to take the less abled but they do not come frequently. The stairs take about 15mins to walk up but are thankfully not too steep, there are just a lot of them. Towards the top they offer stunning views.

Unlike the other 4 Cinque Terre towns, Corniglia is not down beside a harbour or beach. It is set up on high in the hilltops above the Ligurian Sea.
Unfortunately the Cinque Terre train runs along the coast so if you arrive by train, you have to get up the hill somehow.
There are two options. Either walk up the long flight of stairs or get the small shuttle bus.
There are 33 flights zig-zagging up the hill and 377 stairs, although the number varies and sometimes it is said to be more (I certainly wasn’t counting).
It takes about 15 - 20 minutes.
However it is not as bad as it sounds. Each step is wide and long and sloping so that the effect is more like a stepped ramp than a conventional staircase. Its quite manageable for kids although expect to be asked “How much further?”, a LOT of times.
It’s not the easiest walk especially in summer but you always have the bus as a back-up plan if it looks too daunting or you have luggage.
Going down is fine and you have birds eye views down over the sea and cross the hillsides which helps.
Alternately, the shuttle pass leaves from the station, it runs regularly and is free if you have a Cinque Terre Pass but (not surprisingly) it is generally pretty crowded.

This stairway is quite steep and not for the faint of heart! This is one of the two ways to get to Corniglia (the other is the road which is longer but the steepness is milder). The views are nice but be prepared to sweat on the way up. However very enjoyable on the way down!

I do not know why this place is marked as an attraction, am I missing something? It is the stairs from the train station of Corniglia to the upper town. They are veeery long! Next time I will not come by train, so exhausting. The way up took around 10 minutes. The views were not spectacular! You see mostly the railways.

Scalinata Lardarina are stairs that connect the upper (old town) and lower (train station) parts of Corniglia, one of five towns in Cinque Terre National Park, in La Spezia Region, in the North of Italy. It is an historical staircase, from where you can see very beautiful views from surrounding, but the staircase is nice, not more. We use it if you want to go to two parts of the town by walk.

We took the train from Monterosso and hiked up all the steps to the village. Well worth the effort. Stopped several times to admire the spectacular views of the Liguria coastline

The steps are numerous (about 400 of them) from the train station to the top of the hill at Corniglia, but the hike up the stairs are well worth it for the spectacular views. Corniglia was not as crowded with tourists as the other towns in the Cinque Terre, perhaps because of the steps to get there. In any event, my wife and I enjoyed our quick visit to Corniglia during our day trip to the towns of the Cinque Terre.

A nice series of steps linking the town tot eh trin station.

Take the bus right outside the train station for the uphill journey to the center of town. Then walk down on your return journey. Nice wide stairway with gentle steps.

I (Jo) don't mind walking and hiking so the stairs were no trouble for me. Adam disliked the number of stairs but begrudgingly did them. If you are unable or unwilling to get to Corniglia by stairs, there is a shuttle bus from the train station to the town centre and back which is available as part of the Cinque Terre day pass card.
