Vernazza, Cinque Terre (part 4)

June 23, 2010 § 3 Comments

The pretty town of Vernazza. May 13, 2010.

The storm was bad while we were waiting at the Corniglia train station. Before the train arrived, the rain stopped, so we decided to follow our plan and check out Vernazza, and I’m glad we didn’t miss this lovely town out. I think I enjoy Vernazza more then the other villages in the area. It has more stores, a bigger piazza where we get to appreciate the vernazza while we were inside the village, instead of looking at it from far.

When I got off the train, I noticed most of the stores had their lights off…… Right, they were having a black out because of the storm. I guess that might be a common issue for these old villages (I wondered if the gelateria would give out discount as their gelato were melting without electricity…). We didn’t go in any stores expect getting a post card, then we head to the piazza that’s right by the water. The piazza was quite spacious and it had a great view all around. You could see the colourful buildings on the back, a small white church on the right, a cliff on the the left and the undisturbed sea view in front of you.

A restaurant sitting on top of the cliff next to the piazza.

I believe there are more restaurant in Vernazza (more options at different price point), then those we’ve visited previously. I wished we had came here for lunch instead. After a quick stroll on the main tiny street, we headed back to the station and took the train to the last stop of our Cinque Terre visit: Monterosso al Mare.

On our way to the water.
