We, like any of the other reviews stayed at Arianna as a base to visit Cinque Terre and found it the most perfect choice, we stayed for 2 days. Yes the house is high on a hill and the roads can be daunting but we had no problem driving there or finding the place. The views are breathtaking and the room we had was very clean, modern and we had the view of La Spezia harbour. Fernando was very helpful and gave sound advice on parking in La Spezia and suggested we visit Portovenere for good restaurants with amazing views, we were not disappointed. Breakfast was lovely and free parking !!
Fernando also told us about a local restaurant nearby on the hillside, which was a short drive or 20 mins walk away. We didn't book but was seated straight away and sat on a terrace overlooking the harbour. The place is run by 2 guys and there is no menu, we were served 9 dishes which were uniquely presented and the food was positively amazing and the best we had on the whole trip. We worth a visit !
Overall we highly recommend Arianna and would definately return.
