The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is easy to find by car (a big plus for us). Also the free car parking is a major plus for the location.

Wifi is restricted to the ground floor and garden but this is not a major problem.

We stopped for lunch at a restaurant by the water. Good location but lots of people. We spoke to some American ladies who were there for their children's wedding. What a great place for something so special but maybe a bit expensive for the guests!
Next we boarded the train for the last quick trip back ...
After a period of big city sensory overload, a few days' stay in the picturesque northern most village of the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) on the Italian Riviera could not have been more perfectly timed. Our train trip from Rome to La Spezia and then north through the villages of the Cinque Terre gave exciting Mediterranean coastline glimpses of what was to come, but our walk from the train station directly to the scent of fresh salt ...
... imagine many artists finding a rock for the day and setting up their brushes to paint this exact view.
We followed the stone stair case to the left of the marina that was hugging the cliff edge, as we weaved our way around the narrow track there was a number of side exits that lead to ladders and diving platforms for swimmers, the day was over cast and too cool to dive into the water, but if the weather warms up again we will come ...
