Travel Information

Take a train to Monterosso or La Spezia. Then hop on a regional train which travels through the Cinque Terre (4 euro). Do not consider to attempt to drive.

Once in Vernazza find the trail which leads south to Corniglia. The spot is about 0.3 - 0.5 from the trail's beginning. It's pretty obvious. You'll be facing North - North West.

Specifically, you'll notice a metal railing to prevent people from falling off the cliff. However, past the railing there is a nice spot just big enough for a couple tri-pods. This is where I took the photo! I don't recommend doing this! If you do decide to go beyond the railing as I did, be extremely careful because there is very little space. If you make a wrong step you will plummet ~30-50 meters off the cliff to your death.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people

If you walk a further 100 m up the trail you will find the Cafe/Restaurant Torre. Which besides a bit to eat and drink, while you wait for the right light, offers a slightly different perspective. Still prefer Eric’s original with the little tower in the right hand side of the picture.

Beautiful sun star at sunset! Love your POV - a different angle from many others I have seen so far with much more dynamics /1

Thanks for the positive comment Alona, I greatly appreciate it! It was a fun place to shoot Vernazza... I was actually at WinExperience and had to leave and run through town, to the trail, and then down the trail to this spot. I caught this photo with less than 90 seconds before the sun went behind the mountains! Thanks again for reaching out :-)
