Corniglia is a tiny, stone town higher on the hill than the other Cinque Terre towns. There is very little ocean front, only a few restaurants, and a few mediocre shops. There is only one ATM, which was not working for the entire length of our stay there. Manarola and Monterossa are much prettier, with long beach fronts, places to sit and gaze at the sea, interesting churches and cemeteries, and great shops and restaurants. We will not go back to Cinque Terre, because once was plenty and it is not nearly as interesting or as picturesque as the Amalfi coast or the lake region. (And the local wine, which is all thati s available, is pretty awful.) But, if we were to go again, we would stay in Manarola or Monterossa.

Italians decided to close some trails so they open and close to sell you the train ticket which is 12 euros or you can decided to do the trail from manarola to corniglia which will take you roughly three hrs, lots of people were struggling during our trip because it's steep, beautiful views for pictures almost every 20 feet but again very crowded of tourists everywhere and trashing the paths this place gets just B - just visit if you must.

Of the numerous hiking paths in cinque terre, the coastal paths are paying. They sell a day pass or you can buy a day pass for the train for 12 euros which includes entrance to the coastal paths. Don't buy this ! there is only one trail open since all the others are suffering from land slides and are closed to the public. Also the paths which are not defined as coastal also provide excellent views of the sea.
Also make sure you are up for it. Most trails are quite hard, involving steep climbs and descents over very uneven terrain, often very narrow paths next to steep abyss. I mean, it is absolutely beautiful, we walked trough vineards, on cliffs, with fabulous views over the villages, the sea end the landscape. We are not experienced walkers but are fairly fit and we found the walks quite hard. We saw eldery people, families with small kids,... struggling so make sure you know it is not an easy stroll. We walked from Manaroli to Corniglia over the mountain trail which took is 3 hours. Absolutely stunning. We also did the coastal trail between Vernazza and Monterosso. Also very hard but very beautiful. Took us also 2,5 hours. I would recommend doing it starting from Vernazza because the other way is very hard with a very large number of steps to hike up. Make sure you have some wine, fresh lemon juice or limoncello from the guy in the little shack on his vineyard next to the path. He is almost at the end near Vernazza. Very funny guy.
