From the railway station of Manarola you arrive at a tunnel which will lead you to the village's center; going down towards the sea, you will arrive at the small port. Going up a quite steep slope, you will reach the "picnic area" from where you have a wonderful view over the village's houses.
Once arrived at the characteristic cemetery, the path continues almost flatly as far as Corniglia. You will be exposed to the sun rays the whole path long, and you will see beautiful beaches which invite you to have a bath. Before you arrive at the railway station of Corniglia, you will reach a bar, a beach with rocks, and than the bungalows of the Holiday Village Europa. You walk along the sea in a height of about 30 m.
A lot of stairs, from where you can enjoy a fantastic panorama, will bring you to Corniglia within 15 minutes (Corniglia is considered the most characteristic village of the Cinque Terre as it is the only one far away from the sea and therefor also from the tourists' influence).
It is worth having a walk in the middle of the narrow side streets which will lead you to a small square high above the sea from where you can admire the whole coast.
