This is the only main village which is on a hill and that makes it pleasantly different to the others. Enchanting little streets and alleys to wander around and good views of the sea. Easy to get to on the Cinque Terre train.

Corniglia is the only one of the Cinque Terra that does not sit on the coast with a waterfront area. It’s perched high on a hill and involves climbing hundreds of stairs from the train station drop-off. Or you can hire a van to drive...More

We visited 4 out of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre. This was, according to myself, the most picturesque one if we’re talking about the streets. Not the easiest one to get to though - you have to climb 300 steps to get there but...More

Set more away from the coastline than its neighbours, there is a slightly different feel. Walking in from Vernazza was tiring, a lengthy and challenging walk, it earns our gelato and gave us an early view of this village holding onto the cliff. It felt...More

We love Corniglia for its narrow streets and very creative and artistic shops, a great place to visit, shop, eat, and relax.

Corniglia is an excellent place to stay and see in the Cinque Terre. If you want the view and not as many tourists, stay here (I would rent a flat) and visit the other "terre" by train--and boat or by trail. You will walk many...More

All 5 terre is very, this is maybe the one more remote, not possible to arrive by ferry and takes a long walk. As city is the one i preferred, i am suggesting to spend a night it should be a good experience.

We loved it. Feels authentic rather than touristy. Views from here are great but unlike V and R and M there is no real "view of". We came here every night for a drink and loved it. Mind you, the walk up from the train...More

You can't go wrong just hiking around. We walked to Monterosso and took the train back on one day and Riomaggiore on another. There is a shuttle bus from the station to Corniglia but you need to buy tickets in the station... More
