Subject: Cinque terre, Parking and Driving
Regarding this issue, this is the way I feel: In my opinion,the beauty of the Cinque Terre area is linked to its former isolation. Why bring a car there? For me it defeats the purpose of enjoying the Cinque Terre. Walk there, the trails offer the most fantastic views of the ocean, hills and little towns, take a train ....enjoy the magnificent views, the wild plants along the walking trails, and pray to encounter as few tourists as possible while you are there. We parked the car in Levanto, a few miles North of the Cinque Terre, which is charming and worth visiting in its own right. Buona fortuna....Graziella.
