First of all, I'm a heavy guy and almost 50 years old, and I did it with ease. My wife, who isn't good with stairs, almost passed out at the top. But we walked up and then down, and I loved it. My wife hated going up, and loved coming down. We were both happy we did it, though. You... More

These are steps which you need to climb up on the way from the station to the town and climb down on the way from the city centre to the station. So people who are planning to put up in Corniglia pl be aware that there are many steps they would need to climb to get their accommodation . We... More

when we got off the train we noticed people getting on a bus but did not know why until we realized all the steps we had to climb-it was exhausting. The village is definitely worth the climb though-each village of the CT is so unique. We took the bus back to the train station .

These stairs make a great reason to visit Corniglia early in your visit. You do not want to hike up these after walking around all day. They are not particularly steep and have enough space for traffic in both directions; this is the primary way to reach Corniglia from the train station. On the positive side there is a beautiful...

If you go to Corniglia by train then you'll go up to the village via the Scalinata Lardarina. It's a long series of zigzags that take you from the station level to village level. I had a heavy camera bag and I'm in my 60s, I got up hot and sweaty on a warm (25C) day but didn't need to... More

This was quite a climb for mid-July. I enjoyed it, being in somewhat decent shape. I tried to count the steps, but lost count somewhere at the mid-point, so I can't tell exactly how many there were. Several people in my group came up with several different numbers. The views are not bad, but most beautiful once you actually reach... More

Nope, the stairs are not relevant from the architectural point of view. Neither they offer outstanding views - you will find better at the top when you pass the small church close to the cliffs. But they introduce something really, really important - a barrier. A barrier that cannot be easily overcome by a great number of less ambitious tourists... More

The 365 steps are a tough climb in the hot sun with a heavy backpack but are worth doing if you think that you are able for it. The views are great and so is the satisfaction when you reach the village.

You should plan to walk your way tot he village in morning or in the evening all other timing is just wrong. Yes yes OK you are trained but hey summer is warm around here. You just take a walk form the rail station and visit the city which is very nice.

Great exercise! The stairs are not steep. Our group included a 72year old woman who does not get regular exercise ( also, a rather fit 66 & 65 year old man, 63 year old woman, a 60 year old & an 18 year old) who made it to the top in the hot sun & later walked down ( there... More
