    • Bocca di Magra - Monestry Santa Croce

      La Spezia May 23, 2015 at 4:32 AM

      I visited the grounds of this monestry last year, a very restful and tranquil location although I don't think that I should have been there !! My question is can anyone give me any information on this place as I really would like to visit it again and not feel like a trespasser. My Italian is so bad that I cannot translate their website. Any information would be gratefully received.

      Are the trolleybuses still running in La Spezia?

      If so, how close do they get to the cruise terminal?

      How to get to Genoa Airport from Vernazza

      Hi,

      I am wondering whether it is prudent to leave Vernazza for the airport in Genoa on the day of my flight home. If so, How would I do it? Or should I leave Vernazza for Genoa and spend a night there and then leave for the airport the next day?

      Thanks

    • Places to visit in Liguria

      Liguria Apr 8, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      Hello everyone!

      I am planning on staying in Liguria for a full week in May. We chose Rapallo as a base city to stay in and travel around the region from there since we will have a car. We already visited the area a few years ago and really enjoyed our time. We visited beautiful places like Santa Margherita, Camogli, and Portofino.

      We're wondering this time what to visit and where to go. We have a feeling that the region offers a lot more than the main highlights I mention above and need your valuable input and suggestions.

      Thanks in advance for making our (second) trip to Liguria a memorable one!

      Cheers,

      TravellingCA

      Hi,

      I wonder if there is any lavender field and/or wineries in the Liguria region. We will stay in Levanto and visit CT park but is also interested in lavender field and wineries.

      I've searched on Google and some say it is impossible to find lavender in Italy and some say I can.
      Anyone here?

      We will be there in the middle of May.

    • Hotel in Cinque Terre or Levanto

      Liguria Mar 30, 2015 at 2:11 AM

      I´m going to Cinque Terre in the middle of May and has been looking for at hotel in one of the five villages, preferable Monterosso. But that was a difficult task so now we have been looking outside the park, ie Levanto.
      Is it okay to stay in Levanto or is it wrong decision to stay there?
      Is Cinque Terre easy accessible from Levanto? Is the Cinque Terre rail pass valid from Levanto to Cinque Terre? Is Levanto a nice city?

      Anyone who have a hotel to recommend in Cinque Terre and/or Levanto?
      A hotel which is not listed on the big booking sites…

      We are planning to go to Liguria either the week of 27 September or 11 October. I've read conflicting information about the amount of rain we might expect. Do you recommend avoiding this time of year? A little rain is OK, but we don't want the torrential rains.

    • Recommendations for travel to Santa Margherita from Provence and more

      Santa Margherita Ligure Mar 22, 2015 at 10:57 AM

      From 3-9 October, we will be staying a week in Vaison La Romaine, Provenece, then 9-16 October on the Italian Riviera. We currently have booked in at the Hotel Santa Margherita Palace. I have several questions:
      1. What would be the best way to get from Provence to Santa Margherita?
      2. My research indicates Santa Margherita to be well situated for day trips on the Riviera and to places like Pisa. Is this accurate?
      3. We prefer not to drive. Will we be able to get around with taxis, boats or trains easily, or do we really need to rent a car?
      4. For our flight back to the US, where is the nearest airport to Santa Margherita?
      5. Any other thoughts or recommendations?

    • 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!

      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!

      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 Boccadasse...plus 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.

      I understand the trail between these two places is the steepest and most difficult. Would it be good or silly to use a walking stick? I get nervous when there are no guard rails or if the trail is slippery in May. Thank you.
