May 28, 2019 - Two more days in Cinque Terre

Monday 27th May 2019 Corniglia, Italy (walk from Corniglia to Manarola) Up late today, went to the shop to buy eggs, bread, butter, milk and yogurt then back to the room to cook and eat it. At around 10:15am, we set off on a walk from Corniglia up through the hills to the next town Manarola. It was a very steep climb out of the town up very uneven steps. We went higher and higher and the path finally levelled out and became quite easy, walking with breathtaking views of the coastline and the sea as well as both Corniglia and Manarola. We...

May 26, 2019 - Three days in Cinque Terre

Friday 24th May 2019 Corniglia, Italy (walk from Vernazza to Monterosso) Up late today, had breakfast (boiled eggs, a roll and yogurt and coffee) then we walked down to the railway station at Corniglia down the 300 odd steps. Today was quite warm and fine. We joined the throngs on the train and went one stop to Vernazza, a town with a very pretty port and a lovely church, bigger than where we are staying in Corniglia. We have a hike to do, up up and away from the town, very steep with many steps away from the coast into the terraced farms...

There's a railroad running through mountain tunnels connecting all the five villages so you can hike wherever you want, then just hop on a train and zip back to your village.

Jul 2, 2007 - Corniglia

The hike down to this village was also amazing. The village is built right on the cliffs. There are very steep drops right off the sides of the buildings going to the sea. In each of the villages we walked around the market squares a little. We bought some really good strawberries from a little shop here. They were so small but so tastey! We continued our hike to the next village. This one was really easy with pretty much so elevation and only 1 km. The views may have been the best though. There wasn't any farmland around us, but the woods...
