Corniglia, is the only town that sits up on a cliff, offering great views, but no sea access. The train actually stops at the bottom of the hill, so you have to either zig-zag your way up the street or take what I call the death stairs, which consists of 382 steps. Somehow, we managed to avoid the death steps on the way up, which I was thankful for. Corniglia is by far the least touristy of the towns, and the smallest in general. It's nice for a quiet escape from the crowds, and the hiking to and from is some of the best.
