      Where are some great hikes near Noli & Western Part of Liguria (Riviera Ponente)?

      Noli Aug 30, 2016 at 7:39 AM

      Hi Everyone!

      We'll be exploring the Western side of Liguria in late-September and will be based in Noli-Spotorno. Are there any wonderful hikes not to be missed? We have 4 Nights, 5 Days, and would love to hear feedback on any of the following (if people have explored this area and nearby France):

      --hiking from Isolabona up to beautiful APRICALE;
      --exploring the beaches in VARIGOTTI;
      --daytrip to MENTON, France;
      --boat trips to islands like BERGEGGI;
      --Is SAN REMO or ALASSIO worth a visit?

      Would also love to hear about where you ate in this Region. We love hiking and boat trips, but also love Dancing and Music Events as well. Thanks / Grazie and Cheers! :)

      Help! FINALBORGO or APRICALE for Daytrip from Noli in Western Liguria?

      Finale Ligure Sep 7, 2016 at 7:22 AM

      Hi Everybody,

      We'll be based in Noli/Spotorno in late-September and were wondering... if you had to pick one area to explore as a Daytrip, would it be FINALBORGO (in Finale Ligure) or APRICALE, and why?

      Unfortunately due to limited time, we can't do both?

      Thanks / Grazie!

    • Ferry trip in CT

      How long does the ferry trip take from La Spezia to last of the villages? We thought we could take the ferry up & then use the train back to Corniglia, where we have a booking for 2 nights. Also where do we look for a ferry timetable?

      I have 2 boys and a girl, 21, 19, 16. Would they be bored in Corniglia vs Montessorro or Riomaggiore?

    • Any way to get to La Spezia train station other than...Cinque Terre Train?

      by happyrider1000 Online Now Jun 1, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      Is there some kind of shuttle service other than train that we could use to get from Corniglia to La Spezia train station? The earliest train isn't quite early enough...

    • Guvano Beach

      by ARyan86 Online Now Feb 10, 2011 at 6:45 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am planing a trip to the Cinque Terre in June. My question is about Guvano, the (from what I read) "clothing optional" beach. I am going on this trip with a beach-lover and I read this beach is less touristy so I think it would be great to check out. Plus our hostel is in Corniglia. However, I am not comfortable going without a swimsuit. Honestly, I will probably even be self-conscious in a swimsuit. Am I going to be the only clothed person there? I've heard this beach called a clothing optional as well as a nude beach.

      Thank you for the help:)

      Can you drive from Monterosso to La Spezia?

      Alternatively, can you lock up luggage in Monterosso and take the train?

      My wife and I will be traveling Europe for 3 weeks and plan on staying in Cinque Terre for 4 days at Corniglia. My question is: is it reasonable to haul our luggage to our room (up the 377 steps) We are in our 50s and in good shape. Or is there a way to get to Corniglia without going up the steps.

      Thank you very, very much!

    • 5 Terre

      by pyyeung Online Now Feb 12, 2005 at 10:22 AM

      Hi all, A visit to the Cinque Terre in June has just come to my mind. I would like to get some ideas from you guys, before working hard in guide books. Here're my questions: 1) I am an expenericed solo traveller and had been in Italy 10 years ago. It was not that safe there, how about now? Will it be ok for a female traveller go alone? 2) I have about 8 days. I think I will explore Milan and around, spend 3d2n in the 5 Terre Any other places are recommended to go nearby? Will it be too rush to include 2 nights in Venice? 3) I know that it's getting busy early in June, will it be safe to hike through the villages alone? Besides, will it be fine to go without reservation in accommodation? What price should I expect? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    • Reservations?

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 15, 2005 at 6:11 PM

      How important would it be to have reservations if I am going to the Cinque Terre in May/June for a couple of days? We want to stay as cheap as possible but would like to keep our options open about what village to stay in and for how long. Is it going to be impossible to get a good priced room without reservations?

    • Hiking

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 13, 2005 at 12:33 AM

      I'm not super athletic, but I'm set on hiking through the cinque terre. Or at least some of it. How phisically challanging are the hikes? And any other advice pertaining to any of the villages would be helpful too.

      The hunt for the best Pesto EVER!

      by Beth75NJ Online Now May 11, 2004 at 7:41 AM

      Hi everyone, My sister spent some time in Cinque Terre last summer (and I'm dying to get out there!) . She brought home the best pesto, EVER, "Prodotti Tipici Liguri- Cinque Terre in tavola- Pesto alla Genovese" There is a picture of an octopus on the green label holding a knife and fork. Her birthday is coming up and I would love to get her a ton of this stuff as a gift. I looked on the website and it's under construction. I was wondering if anyone else has fallen under the spell of this yummy concoction and if you know where I can buy some or if you'd be willing to help me locate some. I'd be more then happy to help you out with some NYC product shipping. (pickles or knishe's perhaps?) :) Thanks so much, Beth
