"Train/bus/feet/boat" Corniglia Transportation Tip by vj_nija

Corniglia Transportation: 12 reviews and 18 photos

Corniglia and all Cinque Terre is better to be explored by using a mix of public and private transport +your own feet. A Cinque Terre card (see the Webside link) covers travels by train, some buses and paths, so it's better to get one as soon as you reach any of the train stations of Cinque Terre National Park. It's very comfortable to use all means of transport while looking arround and reaching your place of temporary stay. Trains go very often and in late hours. Yet, the bus scedule is limited (the last bus from Corniglia Train station up to the village leaves at 20,00. Later, you'll find your stregths and climb up more than 350 stairs to reach this "high light"). Take a boat and you'll love to admire this amazing, surprising and rich seashore. The boat stops at each village, except Corniglia, as it has no tourist harbour. To cover all villages by feet might be very exciting as well. Unfortunately (or fortunately?!), Cinque Terre is not a place for cars. It's hard to find legal parking not jammed and driving between villages is quite an extreem and a danger as well. So better leave your car in a secure place in La Spezia or Levanto and enjoy other means of transport as many tourists do (it's so easy).
