    • Sunday Cinque Terre regional train times

      Riomaggiore Apr 13, 2014 at 5:50 AM

      I have found the Cinque Terre train time schedule found on cinqueterre.eu.com/en/cinque... and am confused about the times for (Column B) Sunday train times to La Spezia. It looks like there's only one train at 9:00am. Is that possibly true or am I reading the timetable wrong? Does the Cinque Terre regional train run out of Riomaggiore to La Spezia more frequently? I need to get to La Spezia to catch the 8:20am train out to Rome. Can anyone, does anyone have info to assist in my Sunday travel worries?

      Walking in Cinque terre and transport around portovenere and bay of poets with disabled daughter

      Liguria Apr 8, 2014 at 7:42 AM

      we are staying close to portovenere next week, my wife and I with disabled daughter. She does not normally use a wheelchair for short journeys, but we have decided to bring her chair with us as she has been having some difficulty recently. She can climb stairs but is quite slow. My plan is to spend perhaps 2 days visiting the 5terre, one day by boatand one day by train. Are any of the walks likely to be suitable with a wheelchair? She can climb a few flights of stairs or small groups now and again whilst I can carry the chair up, but we couldnt manage hundreds.

      We have 4 or 5 days in the area, my plan would be to do the islands off portovenere on one day and the bay of poets (by bus) the other. does this seem a reasonable plan? any suggestions to make getting about easier? I am assuming a hire car is more trouble than its worth.

      I would like to be in 5terre for sunset at least one evening, how frequent are busses trains in the evening to get back to portovenere (le grazie).

      There appears to be a ferry marked on maps from le grazie to lerici? Any info?

    • Romantic accommodation with sea-view for under 140Eu per night? Possible?

      Riomaggiore Apr 3, 2014 at 3:33 PM

      We're on a budget but I'm planning on proposing to my girlfriend here in CT. So far, we love Monterosso or Vernazza. I'm having a difficult time finding available accommodation for 3 nights (end of this month) for less than 140eu per night. I'd love to find a cute B&B, Vacation Rental or anything with a balcony or rooftop terrace with a sea-view.

      Any ideas? Would be nice to have this private and romantic area of ours for me to propose in. :-)

      Where to Freedive, Cinque Terre

      Friends,

      I am from the US staying in Levanto through Sept 17th. Could anyone here offer tips or best places to go for freediving? Off-shore or by boat. Would like to spearfish but no gun.

      I'd like to hunt octopus but no experience. I understand lobster are not legal to collect.

      Happy to hire a boat or pay a local to show me the ropes for a half-day.

      Grazie!

      by bettyo70 Online Now Jun 15, 2009 at 3:05 PM

      In the interest of spending as much time on the sea as possible, I wanted to know if water-taxis (or later ferries) operate at all between Monterosso and Levanto in mid-September?

      Does anyone happen to know?

      HELP! Is this daytrip to the Cinque Terre from Camogli do-able??

      by bettyo70 Online Now Jun 5, 2009 at 9:10 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      I'm trying to plan a daytrip from CAMOGLI to the Cinque Terre. Not knowing well the ferry or train schedules, I wanted to know if this plan even sounds do-able:

      1) take train from Camogli to LEVANTO in the morning (approx 1 hr);

      2) hike the trail from Levanto to MONTEROSSO (approx 2 to 2 1/2 hours via the coastal trail);

      3) arrive in Monterosso for lunch and a rest (explore Monterosso at leisurely pace);

      4) take ferry from Monterosso to VERNAZZA in the late afternoon;

      5) have a nice dinner in Vernazza, watching the sunset;

      6) take train back to CAMOGLI in the evening.


      Again, I'm not sure how late the trains run from Vernazza to Camogli. (I would hate to be stranded in Vernazza!) Do you think this plan is okay? Thanks!!
