The hill overlooking the sea
Unique for its position compared to other centres of Cinque Terre, Corniglia stands out from the other five towns because it does not face directly the sea, but overlooks the entire Riviera from a ninety-metre high promontory.
Surrounded by vineyards located on typical terraces arranged in strips. Its low and wide houses resemble more inland dwellings rather than typical coastal houses.
The position of Corniglia ensures a breath-taking view that spans on the entire coast, until Monterosso and Punta Mesco.
Discover the past, walking along the trail that leads to Manarola to see the first residential settlements among vineyards and ancient olive trees overlooking the sea.
