    Don't miss it!

    by sue_stone Written Aug 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

    The villages are gorgeous, the views breathtaking and the energetic hikes give you a great excuse to eat plenty of gelato!!

    Make time in your next trip to Italy to visit this magical place.

    Fondest memory: Corniglia is a pretty village perched on a cliff, with cobbled narrow streets and scenic views.

    Stop off for a gelato and an espresso!

    walking/ climbing

    by MATIM Written Sep 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We walked from Manarola to Corniglia in about 45 minutes. The sun rays the whole path long, and we saw the beautiful beaches and the beautiful blue sea beneath us..
    We walked along the sea in a height of about 30 m.
    A lot of stairs, from where we had a fantastic panorama, brought us to Corniglia within 10 minutes

    the reward of so much climbing

    by MATIM Written Sep 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Corniglia is considered the most characteristic village of the Cinque Terre as it is the only one far away from the sea and there for also from the tourists influence.
    It is worth having a walk in the middle of the narrow side streets which will lead you to a small square high above the sea from where you can admire the whole coast.

    the center

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This village, which looks more like a rural than a seafaring village, is the only one in which houses are not directly on the sea, and reses on the top of a headland. On the surrounding hills, vines and olive trees are grown.

    Wonderful views of the sea and mountainside

    by Nojan Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go down to the platform overlooking the water and enjoy a beautiful sunset with some red-wine there. Also, have some coffee with the locals at the only bar in town after everything closes down for the night.

    Fondest memory: I would go on runs in the morning, and then on my way back pick up some fresh orange juice and fresh bread, cheese, and fruit for everyone to have.

    The Cinque Terre Card

    by cup0joe Written Dec 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you are staying in Cinque Terre for any numer of days pick up your Cinque Terre Card. It covers unlimited travel in second class trains between the villages (Levanto to La Spezia). Plus it is required if you want to hike the paths between villages.

    The ticket is purchased at the begining of of the hiking path between villages or you can purchase at any rail station in the Cinque Terre.

    Plus you are givin a map

    Relax!

    by oneonta_ni Written Mar 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I seem to have a lot of tips on relaxing in various places. I guess that is because it is one of my favourite things to do. I like to sit and watch the world go past - why wear yourself out running from place to place?

    Corniglia is a lovely place to do this. It's lovely narrow streets lead to tiny squares with cafes and ice cream shops. Everything is up and down - there are no flat, straight streets in this village, which makes it inviting to wander around in. There is no rush to get to a monument, no rush to be the first in a queue. A place where you can notice detail. My kind of town.

    The Tunnel !

    by coceng Written Feb 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: I found the tunnel !
    Walking through this tunnel was great fun ! There's a door, shut closed.
    I pressed the button & came a voice, talking Italian of course...
    I didn't understand, then an Italian couple came behind me & the guy answered the call, saying like 3 of us wanted to enter.
    The guy's girlfriend just smiled at me...
    We entered & walked about half a mile (that's a long walk !) when we finally came to the beach...
    Love what I saw !

    Fondest memory: As I entered the beach, I saw this sea sight...
    Could see some yachts, sailing in the blue sea; People swimming etc.
    This is a private beach area so I had to pay to be in this area but it was damn worth it for me, at least...

    Yachts...

    by coceng Written Feb 2, 2005

    Fondest memory: In this area also, we can see some yachts saling nearby, not too near to the rocks though.
    Somebody told me that people who have yachts in this area are rich people who like to show off to the people at the beach...

    Back To The Train Station...

    by coceng Written Feb 2, 2005

    Fondest memory: After spending half a day there at the beach, I had to reach back the train station; Had to get back because Vladimir prepared a dinner on that evening with some of his mates.
    Photo is showing the path just behind the train station where there are some people also waiting for the train to some other Cinque Terre destinations or back to La Spezia...
