Corniglia, Cinque Terre

The last village we visited was Corniglia. In order to reach Corniglia you must climb a flight of over 350 steps. Once you finally make it into town you quickly realize how different it is from the other villages. There are more narrow alleyways and instead of walking down to the beach you continue to rise in elevation and reach an observation deck. There you will find a beautiful view of the marina below and the other villages out in the distance. Corniglia was my least favorite village in Cinque Terre and I found to be a bit anti-climatic after the great displays of houses on the cliffs in the other villages. Although I must say that our fruit salad gelatos and cold drinks picked up our spirits and off we went back to our favorite village, Monterosso, for dinner.
