A Quick boat  ride to Monterosso Al Mare made for a nice day trip from Vernazza.

We were  here in April and it was warm enough to enjoy the beach. Totally uncrowded at this time of year.

Perfect spot to unwind and relax from travel stress.   Cinque Terre is best reached by rail. It is possible to drive, but parking and access is difficult. We parked up at the top of a hill in Vernazza, got a shuttle and then had two walk about half a mile to reach our hotel.

Cinque Terre is definitely worth a visit.  Plan ahead and avoid the peak travel periods of June through August.

We stayed an additional night in Santa Margherita and were able to take a boat trip to Portofino. A beautiful seaside village.  Helps to be a bit on the rich side.

No margins here and these are 2007 Prices. But it is worth doing some window shopping in Portofino.

Beautiful view of the port area.  There is much to do in the in the area from Portovenere to Santa Margherita Ligure  is good for several days of exploration.  This is a great place to visit, Hope you have the chance  to visit and enjoy all the attractions. Next time I will bring my hiking gear and explore all the trails.  Ciao
