“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is a lovely little town, with medieval center still largely intact. Eating and sleeping options are mixed, but the overall scene is very relaxed, with mostly local tourists. Nearby Varigotti is also worth a day or two.

“Perfect Italian Riviera vacation location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

This small, historical town is a perfect destination for a summer vacation to the sea. It is charming, safe friendly and tasteful. All the restaurants we have tried here have been wonderful. Try the local fish specialties and the Ligurian pesto dishes -- amazing! Winding streets, narrow passageways, flowers, park benches, a castle on the hill, hiking, a seaside promenade, ancient ruins and friendly locals make it one of my favorite places to visit.

“Like 100 years ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Like a time-machine. If you want a REAL Italian vacation forget the Cinque Terra, where you are unlikely to even hear Italian spoken, and can't get a really good meal for any amount of money, and head for Noli. This feels like the 1930s, a little bit slower, more relaxed and 100% Italian!

“coastal cliffs are stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We didn't get a chance to stop in Noli itself, but between Noli and Varigotti the cliffs and the ocean are absolutely stunning. Some of the most beautiful turquoise water crashing into the base and thrusting up masses of mist, glistening in the sun - picture perfect. We had to stop at the side of the road and watch for a while, soaking in the beauty.
