    Internet in Vernazza

    by sue_stone Written Nov 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Internet Point

    Favorite thing: There are 2 places to use the internet in Vernazza.

    The main one is The Internet Point, which has several terminals. The other is at the Blue Marlin Cafe, where there are a couple of computers.

    We normally go to The Internet Point for our computing needs (ie. checking VT!!).

    It is not cheap, but I can only go without the computer for so long.....

    Coming from the train station, it is located on your left towards the bottom of the hill.

    The Cinque Terre Card

    by lamentforicarus Written Jul 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Cinque Terre Card provides a convenient way to travel between villages. Available at train stations, the card covers all train, trail, and bus fees for a one day (€5.20), three day (€12.40), or seven day (€19.60) period. The card is a great value if you plan to hike between three or more villages and use the trains. Buses run twice every hour between the villages. If traveling by train, be sure to validate your card in a yellow punch box before boarding.

    Vernazza by the harbour
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

    The villages are gorgeous, the views breathtaking and the energetic hikes give you a great excuse to eat plenty of gelato!!

    Make time in your next trip to Italy to visit this magical place.

    Fondest memory: Vernazza is my favourite of the 5 towns...just have a drink by the harbour at sunset and you will see why.

    Vernazza Laundromat

    Favorite thing: Sweaty socks from all that walking between towns in the Cinque Terre ?

    Why not take a break from it all and do some washing in Vernazza's laundrette.

    A good place to catch up on your travel diary or swap stories with other travellers.

    Via Roma, 49, Vernazza

    la furia del mare

    by Aurorae Written Dec 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Storms can be pretty tough in the Cinque terre area! The sea-facing line of the houses in vernazza are not protected, although they are on the high cliffs above the sea! The waves can be so huge and dashing along the rocks, that you have to keep the windows closed unless you want the flood in your house! But it surely has a lot of magic in it, it's very exciting!!!

    spring flowers

    by Aurorae Written Dec 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Maybe the most beautiful time to visit Cinque Terre is May - it is warm like summer already, but not too hot yet, and there is this wonderful spring vegetation, lots of beautiful colourful flowers everywhere, especially if you take a stroll along one of the many hiking trails, say, the Love Path - La Via dell'Amore ;)

    In need of a Laundromat?

    by lamentforicarus Written Jul 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A self-service laundromat can be found on Vernazza's main street. It costs 4.5 euro to use the washer and another 4.5 euro to use the dryer. Tokens for the washing machines are available at the Blue Marlin Bar next door. Instructions are in English. Allow about an hour for a large load. Benches are provided for the wait, but time is better spent wandering down to the harbor to look around.

    Avoid Weekends

    by lamentforicarus Written Sep 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Planning your time in the Cinque Terre can make the difference between spacious relaxation and fighting for a spot at the beach. Because of the Cinque Terre's proximity to Germany and other Italian cities, it has become a popular weekend trip for German and Italian tourists (not to mention Americans on vacation). Try to plan your visit on a weekday, when many of the day trippers are still at work.

    Beaches

    by Aurorae Written Dec 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you're imagining long, sandly beaches with lots of pines, well, don't expect to find them i Cinque Terre. There are NO beaches here. If you want to swim, you can jump off the cliffs, or go to some adjusted beaches. In Vernazza there is one in the very heart of the town, but it gets very crowded. In general, Cinque Terre are more for viewing and sightseeing, rather than frying on the sun at beaches. :)

    Cliffy coastline - difficult to reach

    by Aurorae Written Dec 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The shore along Cinque Terre is very steep, with high cliffs, and very hard to approach! Even nowadays it's difficult to reach any of the villages of Cinque Terre (unless you take the train) because although small distances in kilometres, due to narrow roads, very curved and with the abyss beside is quite difficult to drive, and it's very slow! So, the villages are situated in a wilderness let's say :) but that only preserves their authenticity!

    icecream downtown

    by Aurorae Written Dec 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There is nothing more delicious than having a real Italian gelato (icecream) while walking in the chraming downtown of Vernazza! There is nothing like Italian ice cream! And especially when you enjoy it in the authentic atmosphere! :)
    Explore downtown Vernazza thoroughly! :)

    Monterosso

    Beach of Monterosso
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Monterosso is the northernmost and largest village of the Cinque Terre. It has the best sandy beaches and the most shops and accomodation.

    The village consists of two parts which are linked by a tunnel. The coastal path between Monterosso and Vernazza is in my humble opinion the most scenic and the most demanding part of the 4 paths.

    The Cinque Terre Card

    by tini58de Written Apr 4, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Cinque Terre Card is your entrance card for the hiking path #2 from Monterosso al Mare to Riomaggiore (and/or vice versa). It also includes all trainrides between La Spezia and Levanto for the period of validity, which is either 1, 3 or 7 days.

    In 2006 the rates were as follows:

    - Eur 5.20 (1 day )
    - Eur 12.40 (3 days)
    - Eur 19.50 (7 days)

    The tickets can be obtained at the entrances of the hiking paths or at the local tourist offices or train stations. You get some very useful information along with it!

    Corniglia

    Trail near Corniglia
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Corniglia is placed on a kind of hill plateau and can be reached by steep steps from the train station. The village was built around the year 1000 and has two small beaches. Corniglia is connected with Manarola by a paved coastal path, whereas the trail to Vernazza in the north just leads along a small natural coastal path.

    Vernazza seen from the pier
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The quaint village of Vernazza is probably the "Pearl of the Cinque Terre". It is located in a spectacular bay with a natural stone pier and harbour.

    The medieval church and the narrow alleyways just create the typical coastal village atmosphere. Both coastal paths to Corniglia and Monterosso are physically demanding.
