      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!

      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

      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.
