Our second stop is Vernazza which is a short train ride. First records recognizing Vernazza as a fortified town date back to the year 1080. This village is completely different. It has a different vibe, it is layer out differently with limited access to the water but it is perched more on the mountain slope. We spent quite a bit of time here because there is lots to do and explore, plus there is gelato to be had as well.
On 25 October 2011, Vernazza was struck by torrential rains, massive flooding, and mudslides that left the town buried in over 4 metres of mud and debris, causing over 100 million euro worth of damage. The town was evacuated and remained in a continued state of emergency
