Corniglia – Cinque Terre

Last week we visited Manarola and Riomaggiore on this blog. Today I’d like to take you to the next village that I visited in Cinque Terre… Corniglia.

Unlike the other 4 villages that make up Cinque Terre, Coniglia is not directly on the sea. It sits on a promontory 100 meters high. When you arrive by train you can either order a car to take you to the village or climb the Ladarina, a long brick flight of stairs which is equal to 33 flights or almost 400 stairs.  Can you guess how we got to the top? The Ladarina of course 🙂

  6. I have followed you trip to Cinque Terre with interest. I visit the area some four or five years ago, and fell in love with the five towns. Corniglia was an interesting town, but not necessarily my favourite. But I did walk the flights… Once again you show some beautiful photos of the area. Seems like you have had a fantastic time. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your comments Otto. I did have a fantastic time and really fell in love with Cinque Terre. That’s not surprising though since Italy is one of my favourite countries.

  8. What a delight to walk up that hill and a picture at every corner I imagine – a camera provides a good excuse to take a breather!!

    • LOL…you found me out Andy. When we got to the top I told my husband to wait so that I could get some pictures of the view all the while catching my breath.
