      We will be arriving in to Orio al Serio Airport and would like to take the airport shuttle in to Milan. I would like to book the tickets online but the website (Orio Shuttle) is asking for a time of departure. If our flight is delayed and we miss this time slot, does anyone know if we would be allowed on a later shuttle? If we wait until we land to buy a ticket, is it too risky that we may not get a seat?

      Me and my 2 friends are travelling to Cinque Terre from 28th Oct till 31st Oct 2016. We are using Riomaggiore as our home base. Since all our bookings are done, I would like to be prepared for our stay. Do you think Cinque Terre (Restaurants, Hotels, Pubs, hiking trails etc.) will be partially closed during our stay given its an off season? also, will it rain a lot or will I face bad weather? I would really love to enjoy the sea view but I am Little worried about the weather. I understand none can predict climatic changes but your answers would really help me.

      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?

      --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?

      Hotel Grand Portovenere

      Portovenere Aug 7, 2016 at 9:54 AM

      I booked a reservation with this hotel back in April (they had a 3 night special pricing deal), which would have been wonderful except that I injured my leg and had to post pone my trip until this month. They did give me a voucher for the full price, but it has to be used by Nov 1st of this year, so after that special ran out I ended up only being able to afford two nights with the voucher.

      So this morning I was checking on their website for any events happening this month and low and behold I saw another 3 night special. So immediately contacted them by email and asked if I could get the special and add the extra night? I have been back and forth by email to this hotel because on their website they do not see the 3 night special offer. I have gone to the website several times this morning and I am seeing it. If they do not want to offer it to me then they should just say, not available with your reservation or something, instead they are saying it does not exist.
      So my question is for today only.... Can someone other than me see what i am seeing: If you are willing to try it for me, please go to www.portovenerehotel.it Choose the EN for English, on the left side it will say Deals, chose Deals and the options should pop up on the right, 2 Nights, 3 Nights, etc... Please click on 3 Nights and see if there is a special that runs to Nov 1, 2016. I am sure it is not my computer glitch.... Thank you Francine

    • Best Town to Stay in Cinque Terre in November?

      Riomaggiore Aug 1, 2016 at 6:21 AM

      Hi, my husband and I are travelling to Cinque Terre for 2 nights in late November this year.
      We are choosing between staying in one of the Cinque Terre towns, or in La Spezia.
      We feel we would like to wake up in one of the towns and experience them fully, but we realise that November is low season and we are wondering which would be the best town to stay in so we can experience the 5 towns, but also be able to find somewhere to eat at night. Will any restaurants be open in Cinque Terre in November? Which town would be the best for both food and access to the other towns?

    • Genoa small group tours

      Genoa Jul 11, 2016 at 3:48 PM

      Hi,

      Together with a friend, we are going to visit Genova, in August for 6 days.
      I am finding it difficult to locate good guides/ tour companies that do not just do private tours. These are OK for larger groups of friends but because there are only the two of us, they are mind-blowingly expensive. Ideally, we would hope to join others on small groups tours.
      We are interested in the following:
      1) City tours (various)
      2) Genova to Portofino etc.
      3) Genova to Cinque Terre

      Does anyone know of a reliable company that does small group tours? Bad guide is worse than no guide at all :))
      I would hugely appreciate your expertise and help.

      Many, many thanks in advance.
      Best regards.

    • Question about local trains in Cinque Terre

      I'll be visiting the region in 2 months and am an avid photographer:

      flickr.com/photos/phil_mario...

      I've yet to decide where to stay yet. I'll be there for 4 days. Photographic locations at dawn and dusk are my priority.

      Regardless of where I stay, I'd love to hike to an adjoining village, enjoy and photograph the sunset, eat dinner in that village and then take a single fare trip train ride back around 8 PM to my hotel in another village. This would allow me to photograph at least 4 sunsets at 4 different villages.

      Is that feasible? How often are the trains and when do they stop running in the evening?

      Trains to Cinque Terre

      We have 5 people heading to the Cinque Terre area next year and are wondering about the use of their train system. We really would like to NOT rent a vehicle as we really will not need it at the destinations, just in-between with troublesome parking issues. I understand the convenience of the train within the 5 villages, here are my questions:

      • We would like to spend a couple days in Portofino on the way, is it possible to use the train from Genoa airport to Portofino?
      • Is it possible to use the train to get from Portofino to Monterosso al Mare?
