Subject: Cinque Terre
Good morning Ziners

We thought we might spend a night in Cinque Terre while in Tuscany in late September. Simon & I have been there years ago and spent 1 night at the Porto Roca in Monterosso which was terrific. However, this year, we are going as a group (3 couples) and are looking for something less expensive, preferably in Portovenere from which we will ferry or take the train from La Spezia. I have contacted a few hotels and found the prices to be quite high - it seems it is still high season at the end of September.

Does anyone have any suggestions for moderately priced hotels or B & B's either in Portovenere, Monterosso or even Vernazza?

While on the subject, any great restaurants not to miss?
