Best part of CT was being at the smaller (less touristy) town of Corniglia. The apartment was wonderfully equipped and the air-conditioner worked very well. Bebe was so much fun to talk with and my teenagers adored him! The square was very quiet at night and sitting on the front stoop (with a glass of wine) was a perfect spot to see many hikers and travelers trying to find the right path. We visited the other cities along CT and found them crowed and disneyland-like. Corniglia, being (many) stairs up from the sea, has retained some of the charm we have all read about.
