... but worth it for the views of the Ligurian Sea--part of the Mediterranean--and of the villages atop the cliffs or crowded into the valleys. The weather was gorgeous all day--warm, sunny-- we couldn't ask for better weather. We ate lunch in Corniglia before taking the train to Riomaggiore. We walked up (uphill) the Main Street for a bit, but decided to go down to the harbor instead. ...

Walked around Corniglia and then made my way to the track. Corniglia is the only town on the Cinque Terre that does not have sea access. First 200 metres were lovely but then the steps started - memories of climbing in the Tatras Mountains. The walk is well worth it as ...
