The Blue Trail

IMG 2895Everyone says the blue trail from Corniglia to Vernazza is the easiest of all the hiking trails in Cinque Terre. Being believers we took the train from Manarola to Corniglia. ( 3 minute ride ). The town of Corniglia is high on the cliff above the train station. You can reach it by walking up many many steps or taking the public bus included in our train pass. Silly us, we chose the steps. We finally reached Corniglia after many stops to catch our breath and then started off to the blue trail.

The blue trail is about 1.9 km of mostly ups until you finally reach a second bar/ restaurant where we decided to eat and drink and gather our remaining energy before beginning the climb down to Vernazza. We were two very exhausted, weary people who were incredibly happy to finally walk around this charming town that has an easy access back to the train station.
