Thank you so much for your Cinque Terre pages…….we are planning a trip to Italy with friends in July, and had spent the winter figuring out that we wanted to spend 4 days in Florence, a week in a Tuscany villa southeast of Sienna, and were looking for the perfect third place to spend 3 final vacation days before flying home from Milan.
I had found Cinque Terre in the Rick Steves book at our library today and raced home to hunt websites to see if it was as perfect as it sounded….to good to be true….. and I now think it may be even more perfect than I at first thought……Italy as it must have been decades ago……the whole idea for this trip is to go back in time……..your web page helped me decide that finishing up with this area will be a fitting last adventure. Thanks!

Editor’s Note: July is the high season, there will be LOTS of people there. Try to be there during the week, and book accommodation well in advance, now-ish if possible. It will be still possible to get away from the crowds, just wonder up the winding little streets, and if you are reasonably fit, hike up to one of the villages way above the sea for a great view and a bit of peace and quiet.
