After a long walk from the train station, and ramping to start up the hill, find these zig zag steps that just go on and on and on. Surely fun for the young, but older people will find these steps agony. Luckily, albeit we did...More

Just up from the train station, these steps lead up to the centre of Corniglia where other paths lead further up to grab a view down on the town from above as well. There's a lot of steps and it can be quite tiring for...More

We were doing the cinque terre trail on my wife's birthday. We alighted the train and realised that to get to Corniglia we had to scale these steps - on the hottest day of our hols so far! Not a problem, the walk is pleasant...More
