Nope, the stairs are not relevant from the architectural point of view. Neither they offer outstanding views - you will find better at the top when you pass the small church close to the cliffs.

The 365 steps are a tough climb in the hot sun with a heavy backpack but are worth doing if you think that you are able for it. The views are great and so is the satisfaction when you reach the village.

You should plan to walk your way tot he village in morning or in the evening all other timing is just wrong. Yes yes OK you are trained but hey summer is warm around here. You just take a walk form the rail station and visit the city which is very nice.

Came upon what looked like a bus stop, maybe?!?, and eventually decided to just keep walking, still didn't know exactly where, no sign, and few people that... More

... or you can take the bus. Try the bus out of the train station to do the steps on the way down. There is no buses going down after 19 hrs.

We walked through here to get to the train station after our visit in Corniglia. We didn't realize how many stairs there were - glad we were going down - not up. Good views - a few vendors at landings and base selling artwork etc.

Starway is not narrow, but there are a lot of steps. You have be in shape to climb it; is not under the sun: many trees cast a pleasant shadow.

It was a pretty hot day and we had our 75 year old mother in law with us so we asked first about taking the bus instead of the stairs and after much debate the stairs won. After a few hundred metres walk and getting to the base of the stairs she decided it was too much for her so... More
