The Roman settler Cornelius and his mother Cornelia are the first names that allude to Corniglia as it is today. The country used to extend southward, but serious landslides caused by the sea have caused several hill landslides, which has today become a long cliff with a 365-step staircase, like the days in a year, that connects the town. The village, built around 1000, retains its charm with a series of stone houses and ancient portals of rare beauty. From the ledge, the furthest point of land overlooking the sea, we can admire the ancient valley of mills which is highly cultivated today. Go to Guvano beach for an amazing swim and don't miss "Stappamaggio" in May, the festival of "sciacchetrà"(a local sweet wine).
