    • 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?

      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.

      May ritual?

      by lynclarke Online Now Jan 19, 2014 at 5:23 AM

      We stayed in Manarola for a week in the beginning of May. On our last night there, (maybe around the 10th) we heard singers going from door to door singing the same little ditty at each door. At first we thought we were hearing a bunch of drunks until the ritual continued to what seemed like every door in Manarola. Can someone tell me what we were hearing?

      We will be visiting Cinque Terre in the fall of 2011. I have read somewhere that the ferries "stop in October."

      I have visited http://www.navigazionegolfodeipoeti.it/ and looked at their schedule PDF but I don't see that it mentions discontinuing of the schedule in the fall.

      Will the ferries be running normally in October?

      Hi, I'm considering booking Apartment #1 thru Baranin in Manarola. Has anyone stayed there? I'm having a hard time deciding because we really would like an apartment with a kitchen and a terrace with a sea view. But, we can't seem to find this in one place...you have to make some sacrifices, I know! :-) This apartment has a kitchen and seems to have a terrace with a view of the hills not the ocean, but it's hard to tell from the website.

      If you have any input on this apartment or suggestions on others, please let me know. Thanks!
