      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?

We would like to see all the cities if possible either by train, walking or boat. We get the info from the Park however it is in Italian, and can only understand the chart a little.

      I'm planning to visit Firenze and our ship will dock at La Spezia. Apparently, the ship will dock at Molo Garibaldi cruise terminal (which is good news - with tender boats, precious time is lost). Then, there will be a bus which will drop passengers at the entry of the port, My question is where exactly it will drop people off - the name of the street if possible.

      Also, any useful info for walking from drop off point to la spezia central (walking - it seems far on google map; 40 mins) and any useful info for la spezia central to firenze central.

      Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
