Le Cinque Terre – Corniglia

The Cinque Terre – Corniglia

We Made it!!

An hour and a half (or maybe two hours) later we made it to Corniglia . . . and we were ready to sit down. Corniglia was suuuper tiny. I think it’s the tiniest of all the towns. Which worked out great … ’cause we had done about all the walking around we wanted to do for the time being.

So, we found a shop and had some snacks and juice and gelato.

Corniglia ... all of it

Another View

The part of town where the hiking trail comes in is at the top of a very steep hill, and having just done a nice long hike, and with the sun setting … we decided to take the bus down instead. At which point we had a little lesson on the superior pushiness of Italians … the bus pulled out of the parking lot with 3 of 4 of us on it. And none of us had good cell signal. Oops. On the bright side, Ryan managed to catch the next bus and we rendez-vous-ed at tha Train station to ride back to Vernazza.

Mom thought we were funny, playing with our phones

We ate well that night at Trattoria al Capitano (probably my favorite restaurant that we ate at) – or maybe I was just really really hungry, it’s hard to tell.

    Corniglia is my favourite of the Cinque Terre. I have an apartment 2 hours away in Bagni di Lucca where I spend several months of the year. We go to Cinque Terre as often as we can. We also love nearby Portofino. My blog has lots of photos of the area. http://bagnidilucca.wordpress.com
