The smallest town of the Cinque Terre, the town, in contrast to its counterparts, is located not on the coast, but at the top of the cape, and is known for its wine.
Corniglia is located at an altitude of 100 meters above sea level, three sides of the city are surrounded by vineyards, and the fourth opens an access to the Ligurian Sea. A long staircase leads to the town centre and it offers travellers the fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. You can also use a public transport to get to the centre.
Among the colourful sights of the city - a terrace of St. Mary with views of the Bay, the Gothic church of St. Peter from the 14th century, and, of course, the wine, the locals are very proud of it.
