    • Cinque Terre for those with limited mobility

      Vernazza Feb 9, 2015 at 2:44 AM

      Which of the Cinque Terre towns can be easily accessed from the train station, either by walking a short distance (preferably without many stairs) or by a shuttle bus from rail station to town? I will have the Cinque Terre pass that lets me use the elevators for the disabled. Also, do you know if the Via dell'amore is open now? We leave for Italy next week & would appreciate any info. Many thanks!

    • How to get through Cinque Terre?

      Vernazza Feb 9, 2015 at 12:50 PM

      Hello !

      I am coming from Rome Termini and am trying to find the best way to get to Vernazza and possibly Riomaggiore. As I understand it, I can take a train from Rome to La Spezia and there pick up a train that travels through all the five towns and use that to return to La Spezia and go home at night. This train is accessible from the Cinque Terre card correct? So I only need to buy a ticket to La Spezia, buy a Cinque Terre Day trip card that includes train travel for 12 euro there, and pick up a train from La Spezia that will take me to Vernazza and Riomaggiore that I can do because I have this card, right? Just trying to understand the most economic and direct way. I really appreciate the response!

      Four days in Genoa in April

      Genoa Feb 5, 2015 at 12:31 AM

      What we MUST see in Genoa and the surroundings in a four days trip, in April?
      We'll be there for first time for a short "business trip" and we have on our trip planner only the Acquario di Genova and the Cathedral and city center.
      Any reccommendation is welcome, including restaurants, museums and the shopping areas, to keep my wife happy.
      The VT page with Genoa is strangely poor :( I'll do my best to improve it, once I'll come back.

      How long does the ferry trip take from La Spezia to last of the villages? We thought we could take the ferry up & then use the train back to Corniglia, where we have a booking for 2 nights. Also where do we look for a ferry timetable?

    • Any way to get to La Spezia train station other than...Cinque Terre Train?

      by happyrider1000 Online Now Jun 1, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      Is there some kind of shuttle service other than train that we could use to get from Corniglia to La Spezia train station? The earliest train isn't quite early enough...

    • Guvano Beach

      by ARyan86 Online Now Feb 10, 2011 at 6:45 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am planing a trip to the Cinque Terre in June. My question is about Guvano, the (from what I read) "clothing optional" beach. I am going on this trip with a beach-lover and I read this beach is less touristy so I think it would be great to check out. Plus our hostel is in Corniglia. However, I am not comfortable going without a swimsuit. Honestly, I will probably even be self-conscious in a swimsuit. Am I going to be the only clothed person there? I've heard this beach called a clothing optional as well as a nude beach.

      Thank you for the help:)

      Can you drive from Monterosso to La Spezia?

      Alternatively, can you lock up luggage in Monterosso and take the train?

      My wife and I will be traveling Europe for 3 weeks and plan on staying in Cinque Terre for 4 days at Corniglia. My question is: is it reasonable to haul our luggage to our room (up the 377 steps) We are in our 50s and in good shape. Or is there a way to get to Corniglia without going up the steps.

    • 5 Terre

      by pyyeung Online Now Feb 12, 2005 at 10:22 AM

      Hi all, A visit to the Cinque Terre in June has just come to my mind. I would like to get some ideas from you guys, before working hard in guide books. Here're my questions: 1) I am an expenericed solo traveller and had been in Italy 10 years ago. It was not that safe there, how about now? Will it be ok for a female traveller go alone? 2) I have about 8 days. I think I will explore Milan and around, spend 3d2n in the 5 Terre Any other places are recommended to go nearby? Will it be too rush to include 2 nights in Venice? 3) I know that it's getting busy early in June, will it be safe to hike through the villages alone? Besides, will it be fine to go without reservation in accommodation? What price should I expect? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    • Reservations?

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 15, 2005 at 6:11 PM

      How important would it be to have reservations if I am going to the Cinque Terre in May/June for a couple of days? We want to stay as cheap as possible but would like to keep our options open about what village to stay in and for how long. Is it going to be impossible to get a good priced room without reservations?

    • Hiking

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 13, 2005 at 12:33 AM

      I'm not super athletic, but I'm set on hiking through the cinque terre. Or at least some of it. How phisically challanging are the hikes? And any other advice pertaining to any of the villages would be helpful too.

      The hunt for the best Pesto EVER!

      by Beth75NJ Online Now May 11, 2004 at 7:41 AM

      Hi everyone, My sister spent some time in Cinque Terre last summer (and I'm dying to get out there!) . She brought home the best pesto, EVER, "Prodotti Tipici Liguri- Cinque Terre in tavola- Pesto alla Genovese" There is a picture of an octopus on the green label holding a knife and fork. Her birthday is coming up and I would love to get her a ton of this stuff as a gift. I looked on the website and it's under construction. I was wondering if anyone else has fallen under the spell of this yummy concoction and if you know where I can buy some or if you'd be willing to help me locate some. I'd be more then happy to help you out with some NYC product shipping. (pickles or knishe's perhaps?) :) Thanks so much, Beth
