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!
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.
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.
We will be there in the middle of May.
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?
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…
