We will need to drop a rental car which will be on a Sunday. We will be leaving Castellina and heading to Manarola. Trying to decide where to drop the car before heading to Manarola. Looking to know if we should drive most of the way or train the entire way. There are 4 of us traveling and each have 1 large piece of luggage. I've considered dropping car in Siena and getting the train with multi stops to Manarola, but i"m not sure is this is the best option. Please advise.
My fiancee and i are honeymooning in Cinque Terre in June and staying in Manarola. Did we make a good decision? How long does it take to get to Vernazza?
what is the best way (fastest / cheapest) to get from manarola to nice
I am planing to visit Cinque Terre (only Vernazza, Manarola, Riomaggiore) which will stay in Manarola for a night then go to Tuscany. Do you think 1 night is enough? (I will have a tight schedule if staying more than a night)
I'm coming to manarola in July. my flight lands in Pisa. how do I get to manarola by train? do I have to go to la spezia first and then go to manarola? Do I need to order the train tickets in advance so it will be cheaper? if so, where do I do it?
Also... how much will it cost me to buy a free pass train per day? I'm planning to visit the cinque terre villages for 4 nights and also want to take a train for a day in portofino.... thanks for any help
Are there cabs from the train station to downtown or the waterfront? Or do I resign myself to shlupping all suitcases from the train to where we are staying? Or, can you take a cab from the La Spezia train station to anywhere in Maranola? Thanks,
We stayed in Manarola for a week in the beginning of May. On our last night there, (maybe around the 10th) we heard singers going from door to door singing the same little ditty at each door. At first we thought we were hearing a bunch of drunks until the ritual continued to what seemed like every door in Manarola. Can someone tell me what we were hearing?
Looking for transportation from Genoa airport to Manarola at 22:00. Any suggestions? I am told the last train leaves prior to my arrival time.
We are staying in Manarola for 4 nights then going to Portofino for 2. We would like to go by boat but the ferry service I looked up seems to do Mon, Weds & Fri only. We are leaving on the Thurs. Could you please suggest other boat/ferry companies that will take us. Thanks.

We will be visiting Cinque Terre in the fall of 2011. I have read somewhere that the ferries "stop in October."
I have visited and looked at their schedule PDF but I don't see that it mentions discontinuing of the schedule in the fall.
Will the ferries be running normally in October?
On a previous visit, I purchased small slate hand paintings from each of the 5 towns of Cinque Terra. They are about 10cm x 10 cm squares handpainted with the name of the town also painted on it. I was unable to get one from Manarola and am trying to find a shop that sells them. Can you help?
Is it better to connect to Manarolo in Genoa or La Spezia?
Can you purchase train tickets in advance for getting to Manarolo either from the Genoa Station or the La Spezia Station?
Where can I find the schedules for the local/commuter train that service the Cinque Terre area from either Genoa or La Spezia?
I am trying to find out the train schedules between La Spezia and Manarola. Do you know if reservations are required on that regional train?
Has anyone stayed at Il Patio? It is located above the restaurant La Scogliera. Do you know if that restaurant is open? I had heard that it closed.
We have rented 2 rooms and 2 apts in Il Patio for 2 nights in October.
Need advise on how do I get to the apartmentS from the train station (will be arriving from Milan) as we will have 1 big luggage and looking at the pictures, seems that we will have to have a long walk to most accommodations : . Thanks.
Hi, I'm considering booking Apartment #1 thru Baranin in Manarola. Has anyone stayed there? I'm having a hard time deciding because we really would like an apartment with a kitchen and a terrace with a sea view. But, we can't seem to find this in one place...you have to make some sacrifices, I know! :-) This apartment has a kitchen and seems to have a terrace with a view of the hills not the ocean, but it's hard to tell from the website.
If you have any input on this apartment or suggestions on others, please let me know. Thanks!
Our family will be traveling to Cinque Terre late Dec/early January. Any advice about weather expectations and whether the ferry is in service would be wonderful. We'd like to walk most, if not all, the trail. Is it mostly flat, or are there very steep sections? Any recommemdations for accomodations would be appreciated. Driving time from Florence would be a bonus. Thanx.
I am looking for the best/fastest route from Bergamo Airport to Manarola.

Can anyone give me any hints on these two towns (i.e. good places to eat and shop; where are the best views). Also, how far is each town's train station from the Via del Amore? Thank you for your help!
