|Subject: RE: Vernazza to Como|
you should consider the when going by train along the coast, most of railroad goes through tunnels.
Anyway, I'll have nice views both going to La Spezia and going thru Genoa, but don't expect to get views of Portofino (the train goes through the mountain there).
So my suggestion is to just take the way which is most comfortable form the schedules point of view. I'll get nice views anyway.
I hope you enjoyed your stay in Liguria!
