    • 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?

      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 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

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 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.
