Italy. North west coast

In Easter I'm going to Italy for one week. Coming from Nice and flying out of Pisa. I was in Cinque Terre a few years ago,so don't think I'm going there. Have also been to Pisa,but that's a long time ago. Might go and see the towe before my flight,not sure if I'm staying.
Looking for suggestions for couple of places to stay along the coast,some cousy small towns

Hi Margunn,

Driving the northwest coast of Italy is so scenic, there are nice small towns along the coast............make a stop in Genua, this town is not very popular and really worth to visit - it has beautiful sights and visit the nearby villages like Camogli and Rapallo

If you haven't been to Lucca, this is just a short trip from Pisa and so as Livorno, worth to see while you are in Pisa

So if you have already been to the Cinque Terre (note the spelling) then you have already seen the highlight of the coast in this area, although the coast paths can be full with tourists in high season. Further down the coast, places like La Spezia, Portovenere or Viareggio are also well worth visiting.

I can also second the suggestion to visit Lucca, which is not located at the coast, but quite close to Pisa. It has a very nice old town with loads of churches and you can walk along the old town wall.

Cinque Terre (note the spelling)

Cinque terre or Quince terre is the same, the OP forget to translate in English I think big_smile

I've noticed a few days ago the same with Venice which was written in Swedish (Venideg)....... with all different language in Europe is all understandable, I sometimes had the same problem wink

He he,thanks for the spell check guys. We do spell some places differently, but not Cinque Terre. I blame auto correct 😉
Haven't been to Lucca,so that's definetly an option.
