Corniglia Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 249 photos

The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) region of Italy is located on the Ligurian Coast, an hour or so from Pisa.

I haven't yet visited the whole of Italy, but from what I've seen so far, my favourite place is the Cinque Terre.

Ok, the Amalfi Coast is beautiful, but the Cinque Terre is captivating.

There are 5 picturesque villages perched on the cliffs and you can walk between them, amazing at the beauty that this region has to offer.

It is magic here - but don't tell everyone!

Corniglia is the middle of the 5 towns that make up the Cinque Terre region on the Liguarian coast of Italy.

It is perched on a ridge high above the sea, a 363 step zig-zag climb up the hill from the train station.

Worth the climb though!

The other villages of the Cinque Terre are:




Monterosso al Mare
