Bright large spotless room,very quite, right in centre of town, 10 minute walk to train for visiting the Cinque Terra villages, only thing was no wi-fi in rooms and had to use lobby. Other people can be a distraction.
Good breakfast, helpful staff.

We decided to go to Portofino today as we had had a good look at the Cinque Terre region yesterday. We caught the train to Santa Margherita which took about 40 minutes and then we walked to the ferry to go to Portofino, this was only a scenic 15 minute boat trip.
We disembarked and went for a walk thru the upmarket shopping area. There were outdoor cafés set up all along the water front. A very large private yacht was moored in the bay, lots of security!

... much of this village was destroyed by a huge mudslide. It is now in stages of reconstruction. You can see evidence of the mud line on the buildings and the lower levels of the residences are vacant and being repaired, cleaned, and painted. There are also passageways that are still blocked by the mud. The actual village consists of one main street with passageways and staircases leading up to the ...

... town Monterroso for a few minutes (because the train took me too far), but it is extremely crowded there (they have "sand beaches," which are more like gravel beaches). Vernazza was very very nice. I sat out in the sun by the water for a while, and then I hiked uphill for a bit to get a good view. It was fantastic.
I am back in Riomaggiore now, and I am headed off to Siena tomorrow. I'll spend just a night there, ...
... at the beach, with rented umbrella and deckchairs, reading and swimming.It was bliss. We had little fish swimming around our feet and the water was so clear and clean.... even if the beach was made of pebbles!!!
We went to Riomaggiore for a while in the late afternoon, lovely town, pretty with great photo opportunities!! That night we went to MIky's for tea and had beautiful seafood..... perfect end to a lovely day.
