Corniglia is the smallest village of the Cinque Terre, part of the municipality of Vernazza.
It is the only village which is not built directly on the sea, but on a cliff of about 100 mt. above sea level.Its architecture is closer to that of a rural inland village than that of a coastal village.
Corniglia is connected to its train station by a three hundred step footpath.
The other Cinque Terre villages can be reached by train or taking the ecological bus run by the Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre (free with a daily park access ticket).
Corniglia is connected to the other villages of the Cinque Terre by well kept footpaths, maintained by the park staff. It is possible to reach the Via dei Santuari (the Sanctuary Way), the Vara Valley and the Gulf of La Spezia from these footpaths.
This sunny land produces excellent wines, such as the famous white wine, Sciacchetrà.
Highway A12, 34 km. far from the tollgate of La Spezia
