Welcome To Corniglia, Cinque Terre

Corniglia, the middle land of Cinque Terre

Corniglia is one of the villages of Cinque Terre, in Italy. Travelling northward and southward, Corniglia is the third village and the highest: it is placed on a steep promontory, with two exclusive small beaches at its sides. Like the other villages, it is a shining gem along the sea.

What To Do in Corniglia, Cinque Terre

When you arrive at the train station at Corniglia, there are two ways to reach the center of town. Turn left out of the station and the bus is up and to the right, the walking trail, to the left. The walking trail is well maintained, with 365 (one for each day of the year) gradual steps leading up to the top of the town. Along the trail, as you walk through the vineyards, there are many stops with picturesque views of Manarola, the next town to the south When you arrive at the top of the steps, turn left to head to the center of town. Turn left and walk up the small street (Via Fieschi) that winds through the town, with many small stores and bars with local products. Gelateria Artigianle is well worth the stop for a taste of Gelato to refresh you from the long climb. Enjoy the Miele (honey flavored). Stop by and have fresh anchovies and wine with Mario, the owner of enoteca I'll Pirun. The music here is wonderful blend of jazz and blues. Continue on, and turn left past the church, and up the steps for the best views of Manarola.

Corniglia, The Village

The village stretches along the main road, Fieschi Road, and the houses have one side facing this road and the other facing the sea. Corniglia is characterized by narrow roads and a terrace obtained in the rock from which all other four Cinque Terre's villages, two on one side and two on the other, can be seen. The town planning structure presents also original characteristics compared to those of the other villages: the houses are lower set, and only more recently higher, similar to those of the villages of the hinterland.
