I wish I knew this was not worth the visit in high season June-sept. There were so many people it was unpleasant. Santa Margherita is so much prettier. If you do go take a private (or group) boat or go by train so you can...More

Go out at 7 AM and enjoy the town before the crowds come after 9 AM. For Coffee --Blue Marlon. Do a take away lunch and eat down by the beach or climb up the Corniglia trail and enjoy a picnic away from the tourists....More

We hiked from Monterosso to Vernazza... the view from the hills of the village was highly rewarding and worth every step of the way. It was packed on the Saturday but if you follow your nose there are plenty of quite little alleys to wander...More

What a beautiful little fishing village, one of my bucket list places to see, unfortunately, from the moment we got off the train (it was more like rush hour in London), it was over crowded and felt unloved and needed some investment to restore it...More

We stayed 5 nights at Casa Catò (the best!) and can say this was the best spot to stay and visit all the town, Porto Venere and other nearby places. Swimming is lovely, the vibe beautiful. Make this town your base!

My favourite place in Italy. It's like walking back in time to old Italy that you read about in books. Nothing to do but eat amazing food, relax and hike between the beautiful villages.

Thank Terry B
