We were planning to go to the area close to Cinque Terre: Lerici, La Spezia, PortoVenere for 3 days. And I have a questions: is it worth going there outsite summer period, lets say May, when the weather is quite warm but the sea is still cold to swim? Because as far as I know these cities are mostly famous for their beaches.. Is there anything else to do there (exluding the museums:) some more opendoors activities? Is it interesting to walk around the cities or are there some parks or these places are too small for this? Thank you, Varvara.
