Staircase to heaven, another description of Cingue Terre. The trails, paths and staircases are what places Cingue Terre on the must experience world sites list. Great walk.

From the train station you climb these stairs up to Corniglia. They are pretty winding but aren't too steep and are wide enough for people to pass by you while you rest.

We had no idea that going to Corniglia meant a further climb of nearly 400 steps after walking from Monterosso to Vernazza that morning - luckily I suppose we had no choice but in the end it’s the gateway to this pretty town in the...More

The trails are fun and a good exercise and on top of that they do provide you with great views of the town. Corniglia is a pretty town and the one at the highest point, so whenever hiking there you do have an elevation, but...More

Over 400 steps to the top(they don't look as much), get ready for a climb with a great view. If you are not really into climbing those steps there is a bus you can take from the train station to the town.
