Corniglia is situated in the middle of the five fishing villages that make up Le Cinque Terre and this is its special feature. Perched high on a rocky outcrop, some spectacular views of the coast can be enjoyed here.
From here it is easy to reach the other five villages that make the Le Cinque Terre. The nearest train station is a 15 minute walk outside of the town which by foot involves a walk of 800 metres encountering approximately 365 steps!! Alternatively you can get the bus for a small fee of 1.5 Euros. From the station there is a tunnel that takes you to a beautiful beach. It is private, but for a small fee the owner will let you through!
