Corniglia is the smallest town of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) and is the one situated in the middle of the five. It is a place of outstanding beauty. Le Cinque Terre was declared to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 1997. Corniglia is not directly connected with the sea, in the same way as the other four towns are, but it is on a rocky promontory, surrounded by vineyards, something very unusual. You can access it climbing a steep staircase .... Or by car coming from the train station. It is a worthwhile trip.
