Customer Travel Tip: At the train station there is no counter for buying tickets. You have to buy from the machine. Queue can be very long in the morning. If you can't use the machine don' t know who to turn to.

Liked: A good size town and convenient for going to Cinq Terre, Florence and Pisa. People are nice and safe town.

Disliked: No large supermarket. Train station should have at least one man to help in selling tickets.

Customer Travel Tip: YOU MUST GO TO CINQUE TERRE!!! It is honestly the nicest place and it is just so unique. We got up and took the 5:30 train it seems early but to have the gorgeous villages to yourself was amazing. Take your swimmers, catch the train and enjoy!! .....But be aware on the train to La Spezia from Florence is a little dodegy and just be aware as tere are a few gypsies.

Liked: It was very cute and friendly. The main street has a great atmosphere and so does the port. You feel very comfortable there and I really like it.

Disliked: No
