The Cinque Terre – Corniglia
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.
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.
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.
