In reply to earlier posts: Yes, the view is stunning, unbelievable, out of this world, gorgeous, what have you. And no, Volastra is not all that remote. The path to Corniglia isn't easy carrying a small child, but the shorter one to Manarola is an excellent mountain path. OK, it consists mainly of stairs. But it's doable in forty minutes, and that's two middle-aged, out-of-shape people carrying a toddler between them. Our muscles were perfectly fine afterwards. As for the bus, we took it often and it was always perfectly on time (even by our Swiss standards) and when there were many passengers, they even sent a second bus! Volastra is a tiny hamlet where people still grow wine and vegetables; they'd just started picking the grapes when we left. The relative scarcity of tourists is what drew us there to start with. And we don't understand an earlier poster's complaints about the family that runs the hotel; they're friendly and efficient. Warmly recommended.
