|Corniglia, the middle town of the Cinque Terre|
The third of the five towns of Cinque Terre, Corniglia is perched high above the sea, surrounded on three sides by picturesque terraces and vineyards. while the fourth side looks down on the sea. Accessible only by a long long stairway or a winding road, Corniglia is quieter, less visited by tourists.
Corniglia is a tiny village, of only 240 people. with colorful homes stretching across the one main street. The Trip Advisor notes, "One of the nice things about visiting this particular town of the Cinque Terre is you can sit in the town square all day and read a book, hike the nearby trails, taste the local wines or food, or sit in a cafe in the sunshine. Whatever you do, you will be participating in Il dolce far niente -- the sweetness of doing nothing."
Next year the Painting/Photography Workshop - with Linda Richichi - will spend 6 days in Cinque Terre and another 4 days in Lucca, one of the wonderful charming Tuscan towns. Contact me for more information.
