Wandering Around Vernazza

After hiking to Vernazza, we stroll around the village, wandering through the narrow streets on both sides of the main square, receiving the reward of occasional glimpses across the rooftops of the city and into the sea.

We walk up above Vernazza, starting on the trail to Corniglia, to get the spectacular view of the village from above,

We then descend back into the Vernazza to explore the area behind the main square, opposite the sea.

Walking back over to the main street, Via Visconti, we find that today is market day in Vernazza and the street is lined with stalls and shoppers, featuring food for here, food to go, clothing, housewares, and just about anything anyone might want.

Continuing along Via Visxonti to the harbor, we pick a spot and have our lunch, anchovy pizza (with olives, capers, and tomato sauce) and a speck and brie panini.

Another great Cinque Terre village and experience!
