WINTER RECCOMMANDATIONS:

Certainly winter is not the best time to visit the Cinque Terre, which are summer villages and mainly come alive from April until the end of October, however winter is the best time to appreciate the nature, the landscape and the quietness of this magic lands away from the summer crowds. A stop to Pisa before heading to Cinque Terre is a must. 

FOOD & DRINKS From November until March the majority of the shops and local restaurants will close for their annual leave. We recommend to bring a packed lunch
FORECAST In case of rain we recommend you to bring a rain coat due to the wind on the villages and wear warm clothes
