To get a good view over Vernazza, you have to walk up the mountain. The path leads from the center through many small alleys via a beaten track to the photo spot. It’s not hard to find. Since the ideal spot only has space for some photographers, you should be there early depending on the season and weather.
This photo spot is located at a public trail and can be accessed 24/7.
