I have read a lot of good things about Hotel Florida in Lerici. Can anyone tell me more about Lerici? WOuld it be a good base for exploring part of the Italian riviera? Is a car necessary? WHat is the swimming like?
My husband and I will have five days to vacation this summer (first week in July) after attending a conference in Milan. Since we will do city things, i.e. museums, shopping, monuments, in Milan, we would like to relax -- to swim, to hike and to look at beautiful scenery. Is Lerici a good base for this?
