Where to stay when visiting the Cinque Terre - winter or summer

by Melanie
(USA)


Our family has returned from our long planned vacation to the Cinque Terre and the Italian Riviera.


You know what we did? We took your advice even though we don't know you or anything we felt pretty much like we did after reading your newsletter. You and Maria are so much like friends of ours now :-)

You are even better friends after your advice turned out to be fantastic. We stayed in Levanto at the Oasi Hotel. If anybody else reads this and needs somewhere to stay when visiting the Cinque Terre then this is a great option.

I've got to add on this, the Cinque Terre isn't about beaches (however Levanto has a good beach) so don't worry if you visit winter or summer, these little hamlets are great whenever - with a bit of sunshine they look even better and that sunshine can be winter sunshine too.

Andrew's reply: I am so pleased that our advice worked out well for you and it's great to know we have new friends in the USA :-)

I agree too that even during the winter the Cinque Terre can be amazing and you don't have all the crowds of July and August.

Cinque Terre advice
by: Irene

Thank you, like many people I am using your suggestions to plan my holiday through Italy with my husband in 2015. Have taken your advice and booked into the Oasi Hotel. I am traveling through Northen Italy from Como to Genoa (seeing family and reliving my childhood memories) most of the way down the coast io Piza, Florence then into Rome.
Inspiring to read comments from other travellers that have used your suggestions. We are Australian so love to read any feedback

Cinque Terre

In 2008, I had the great privilege of visiting the Cinque Terre with my wife and daughter. We stayed in Corniglia, unfortunately one night only.

In the short period that we were there we fell in love with the place and are longing to return, although we have subsequently been back to Bella Italia, we have not had an opportunity to return to the Cinque Terra. Hopefully this will happen in 2015.

Maria's reply: You are so right Roy; the Cinque Terre really is the sort of place you can fall in love with. One night/day is all it needs too. Trouble is that although you spend but a day the longing to return stays with you for the rest of your days.

I hope the picture I've attached will bring back some memories for you.
