Sentiero Vernazza a Corniglia#3 in Best Things To Do in Cinque Terre
Sentiero Vernazza a Corniglia is the name given to the hike that connects Vernazza with Corniglia.

Some highly recommend trekking from Vernazza to Corniglia (versus Corniglia to Vernazza) since the initial part of the hike has a steep grade and loose rocks that could be difficult to descend. Reviewers also recommend starting early in the morning to avoid the midday crowds and sun. You'll also want to check the weather – if there's any rain in the forecast, the trek can be even more difficult.
The Sentiero Vernazza a Corniglia is a section of the popular blue trail, which also goes by the names "No. 2" and "Sentiero Azzurro." You'll need your Cinque Terre Card to access the trail. It should take a little less than two hours to traverse the 2-mile hike, and you can find the trailhead adjacent to the CECIO Ristorante Camere in Corniglia or the Caso Cato in Vernazza. Along the way, recent visitors were pleased to find a coffee shop and a restaurant.
