  1. question we are coming for honeymoon – actually coming to Italy for 6 weeks and want to spend our honey period in this area 10 days approx for that time frame. two questions – is there enough to do our goal is to sun, hike, eat at a variety of restaurants, people watch, coffee and visit local markets etc. OR we have found some great romantic rental homes in portovenere woud we be missing out on the cinque experience by staying portovenere or would we be avoiding some of the crowds

    1. Ciao Elizabeth!

      Congrats on your wedding!

      Will you have access to a car? If not, I wouldn’t recommend Portovenere for an extended stay as it’s quite isolated (it’s not connected to the railway lines). If you will have a car, check to make sure the accommodations offer parking as parking on the street in Portovenere is pricey.

      If you stay in the Cinque Terre you will be able to travel around easily by train (the trains run up until midnight) and visit other villages/nearby cities. In Portovenere the only public transport are the city buses and ferries (the latter of which only run during the day).

      I hope this info helps you decide! 🙂

      2. Ciao again Elizabeth!

        I’m in the process of creating a dedicated email address for the blog. As soon as I’ve done that (hopefully it will be up and running by today) I will send it to you here so you can then contact me directly (I’ve got questions to ask you in order to better advise you). I’m actually in the process of setting up consultation/concierge services to flank the blog as there has been an overwhelming request. 🙂

        Stay tuned!


      3. Ciao again Elizabeth!

        So… ahimè… setting up my dedicated email for the blog wasn’t a piece of cake like I had imagined. I’m going to call my tech guy on Monday and hopefully he can square it away for me. In the meantime, reply here if you’d like with your email address (which I will delete as soon as I see it) and I’ll write to you from my personal address. 🙂

        Ciao for now,
