Subject: Hotel(s)& Walking-Hiking in Cinque Terre
RE: Cinque Terra, We were there this past Sept and stayed in Vernazza at Trattoria Gianni, fax : 001-39-0187-812-228. It's a great place, lots of small rooms all over the place! We hiked from Vernazza to Riomaggiore and took the train back. It was uphill some, but not too hard and I have bad knees. You will meet lots of people, just strike up a conversation when you see someone stopped to rest and you can go with them or not. There were lots of people on the trail and it's fun to see the towns and do some looking around and have a soda on the church steps or at a cafe. Take water and your swim suit if it's warm enough. Have fun and eat lots of pesto!! Pam in Montana.
