cinque terre – from corniglia to monterosso


I ended my last Cinque Terre post in Corniglia. When we arrived at the station, I only saw a big hill in front of us and I knew I would have to brave all the steps to actually get there (312 in total) but it was totally worth it! The view was absolutely stunning…


Again, we wanted to walk to Vernazza but it was almost 37c, we were hungry so we to the easy way and took the next train to Vernazza (shame on me, I know…)


We stopped to have lunch in Vernazza at a small pizzeria where I had the best ever pesto pizza… seriously, the basil in Liguria tastes differently than in the rest of Italy and I still haven’t found out why…

After lunch, we took the trail to Monterosso, it took us 1.30 hour to get there. It’s quite steep at first but then, it’s really easy and beautiful…

Monterosso is beautiful! After the walk, decided to stay a bit, we went for a swim and lid on the beach for an hour or two… before having an aperitivo

Beautiful memories…
