"La casa del gatto di mare" is an excellent b&b located in La Spezia, 5 minutes walk from railway station. A really good location to visit "5 terre" as well as other beautiful villages like Lerici, Tellaro, Porto Venere. Entering this nice flat, you immediately feel like entering home: worm atmosphere, elegant furniture and welcoming owners. Everything, from main to... More

This B&B is conveniently located close to the La Spezia station - about a 5 minute walk (if that). Staying in La Spezia is a cheaper option for touring Cinque Terre (which you can really see in just a day, even if you are walking between the villages). You can buy the Cinque Terre pass at the La Spezia station... More

Great b an b close to the train station and town square. Giovani and fiorella were helpful hosts, providing us with lots of information about cinque terre and the surrounding area. Great value, and the best breakfast we had in Italy!

This was a very nice bed & breakfast, run by a very kind & generous couple. It was near the station so convenient for us as we were travelling round France & Italy by train, and visiting the Cinque Terre. We found the amount of tourists in the Cinque Terre to be a bit overwhelming, especially on a Sunday. It... More

In fact it was the highlight both mum and me. Nice room, everything immaculately clean, fantastic breakfast and just wonderful people!!! Its only about 5 minutes walk from... More

I just returned from a trip to Italy and Croatia. I sidetracked after Florence up to La Spezia and Cinque Terre. I stayed at this bed and breakfast that I stumbled upon while searching the net. The couple that run this place greeted me like long lost family. Their hospitality was commendable as was the breakfast in the morning. The... More
