Is travelling in March a problem (portofino, cinque terra + como)?

by hobbietan Online Now Feb 3, 2007 at 12:38 AM

Hi!

planning to fly into Milan during 2nd week March, to visit portofino, 5 terra and como. Just wondering if the winter-spring transition will change anything? Specifically
(1) are the walking trails closed;
(2) are ferries on lake como running; and
(3) If I drive from Milan to these places, will I still run into traffic jams, like those in summer?

Grazie in advance!

    1) when you are talking about 5terre : I have done it in march 2003 and everything was open, but less tourists. In summer you might have a few more ships from places like Genua etc. to 5terre, I think its better to take the train
    3)Around Milan you certainly have jams all year long !
