BY BIKE OR MOTORBIKE

For those arriving by motorcycle we suggest to follow alternative tracks, more panoramic and exciting than a journey on the freeway.
From Genoa: follow the SS1 Aurelia bordering the sea and going through Bogliasco, Recco, Rapallo, Chiavari, and Sestri Levante, where you continue until the Bracco pass (610 meters above sea level, a route that will be appreciated by the bikers for its numerous curves and the very good surface). After the Bracco Pass, continuing on the SS1 in the direction of Cinque Terre, take the first junction on the right towards Pignone. After the small town of Pignone, continue in the direction of Monterosso until you reach the junction to Vernazza and then Corniglia. We suggest that cyclists visit the other towns only if they are interested, because they will have to return to the main road up very steep hills. The whole route from Genoa to Corniglia is about 110 km long.


Alternative routes:

1. The first alternative is very scenic and goes over the Bracco pass, where you can decide to stop in Framura and Bonassola and then take the road to Levanto again.
The second alternative is shorter and very special but is not suitable for bicycles. From Sestri Levante follow the road to Riva Trigoso where you continue through the tunnels of the old railway line until Moneglia, then through other tunnels to Deiva Marina and then return up again to the Bracco Pass, from where you continue, following the previous information. This alternative is very fast but we remember you that in the tunnels the traffic is regulated by traffic lights every 10 minutes, they are narrow and single-lane and pedestrian and bicycle access is forbidden due to insufficient lighting.

2. From La Spezia: departing from the city centre you reach the area of the soccer stadium “Alberto Picco”, on Viale Fieschi. After the stadium you reach a railroad crossing, and after that a junction: veering left you can reach Portovenere, while turning right you can reach Cinque Terre on the SP 370 (there are a lot of panoramic spots on this road for taking wonderful pictures of the Gulf of La Spezia). Continue in the direction of Manarola, until you reach the junction to Corniglia, where you drive down. The whole route from La Spezia to Corniglia is about 30 km long


3. From Milan: from Milan you can reach the High Scrivia valley and then Genoa with the SS35 of Giovi Milano-Genova. Along this road, very busy during the 1950's when the freeway did not exist, you cross through the towns of Busalla, Savignone, Montoggio, Casella, and Bargagli, where you continue until the green Fontanabuona valley, from where you can reach Chiavari. From Chiavari you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.

4. From Piacenza: from Piacenza you can reach Genoa with the SS45 of Trebbia Valley, passing by the valleys of Bisagno and Trebbia. By this road you will also reach Bobbio and Marsaglia. From here you can decide to continue until Rezzoaglio, Borzonasca, Marasco and then Chiavari, or to make a small detour to Santo Stefano D’Aveto, from where you can reach Rezzoaglio. From Chiavari you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.




Alternative roads:

1. From Borgo Taro you cross the Cisa pass (1039 metres above sea level), pass through the Magra Valley and reach Sarzana, from where you take the SS1 Aurelia to La Spezia and then proceed to Corniglia.
2. 
From Borghetto Vara drive to the junction to Pignone, then to Pignone, then to the junction to Monterossoand continue towards Vernazza, from where you proceed to Corniglia.


3. From Reggio Emilia: from Reggio Emilia take the SS63 of Cerreto that goes along the Apennines until the pass (1260 metres above sea level). Then cross the towns of Fivizzano and Rosaro until reaching Aulla, in the centre of Lunigiana. From Aulla you can take the SS62 leading to Sarzana and then to La Spezia. From La Spezia you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.

4. From Florence: take the road to Pistoia, Montecatiniand Lucca, cross the Garfagnana region, continuing to Aullaand then to La Spezia. From La Spezia you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.


5. Alternative roads:
From Montecatini to Pisa, Viareggio, Carrara, Sarzana and then La Spezia. From La Spezia you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.

For both directions we suggest you to use the S.G.C. FI-PI-LI (Highway Florence-Pisa-Livorno) for the first part of the route and then continue on the SS1 Aurelia.

6. From Rome: go along the coast on the SS1 Aurelia in the direction of Civitavecchia, Grosseto, Follonica, Cecina, Livorno, Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio, Carrara, Sarzana and La Spezia. From La Spezia you can continue, following the previously mentioned instructions.


BY BOAT

Corniglia is the only village in Cinque Terre without direct access to the sea, because the town is located at the top of high cliffs.
The boats connecting the other towns of Cinque Terre do not stop in Corniglia, so we suggest to those wishing to travel by boat to disembark in either Monterosso, Vernazza, Manarola or Riomaggiore, and then proceed to Corniglia by train or on foot.

BY CAR

By freeway from within Italy:
Corniglia does not have a freeway exit, so it is necessary to exit in La Spezia. From the La Spezia exit follow the signs to the city centre, and then to Cinque Terreand then Portovenere (please note: do not take the junction to Lerici). Cross the city, driving near the harbour. Near the soccer stadium “Alberto Picco”, you reach the long Via Fieschi and proceed on it until you reaching a junction: to the left is Portovenere, veering right on the SP 370, you will drive in the direction Cinque Terre. This panoramic road stretches uphill along thousands of bends overlooking the Gulf of La Spezia: a photo stop is a must. At the top of the ascent the road becomes flat curving above the towns of Cinque Terre: pass Riomaggiore and then Manarola, from where you continue along the provincial road until the junction to Corniglia, which can be reached after a few minutes along a steep descent with a lot of bends.
