  Enjoying some wine at the end of the day!

The hike between Corniglia and Vernazza was quite demanding but very pretty! The path was rockier and steeper than earlier sections, but the scenery in the olive groves and vineyards we walked through made it more than worthwhile. And then there was Vernazza! The village is centered on a beach with a piazza surrounded by bars, pizzerias and restaurants. When we arrived, it was late in the afternoon, so after a bit of exploring and some gelato, we settled down at an umbrella-covered table and sipped wine while watching the sun set over the Mediterranean. . . Sigh . . .

When we were ready, we strolled up to the train station and caught our ride back to La Spezia, where our hotel bed awaited! We still had one more Cinque Terre village to see, so the next morning, we hopped back on the train to Monterosso and hiked back south to Vernazza. But I'll write about that on the Monterosso tip!

Address: 4th train stop north of La Spezia
