    • 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!



    • Lavender field and wineries

      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.

      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 will be staying in the hills just south of Sestri Levante in August this year (yes next month!) I need to know if there is a railway station at Trigoso (as this is the closest town)? I believe parking will be hard to find at the railway stations...what is the chance of finding parking in the streets while walking the Cinque Terre tracks? We have a car and can drive from accommodation to the station but will need to park the car (a must). Canm anyone help please?

      I will be traveling to Sestri Levante in Sept 05 from Rome. I have family in Riva Trigoso I would love to meet. I was thinking of taking the train from Rome to La Spezia, but finding a way to get from there to Sestri Levante/Riva Trigoso has not been easy on the internet. Any suggestions. First trip to Italy, so it does not have to be the fastest way. Thanks, Mike

    • Hotel in Sestri Levante

      by cl3150 Online Now Apr 4, 2004 at 12:59 PM

      I am planning on spending two days visiting the Cinque Terre and had considered staying in Sestri Levante during that time. Which hotels would one recommend there? We would like a deluxe or first class property. Its difficult to tell from the few online sites I have viewed. All suggestions are appreciated. We would be driving there, so parking is a requirement.
