We are going to Italy this May for a 3 week visit. We had originally planned on visiting the Cinque Terre area but understand that 2 of the 5 villages have been severely damaged in Oct 2011. Can anyone provide an update as to the status of the area and whether it would be wise to give it a miss? Were the other 3 villages also damaged?
Also, can anyone recommend a good place to stay in or around the Cinque Terre? many thanks.
