You can find the suites Sapphire and Emerald in Via Carattino at n 20, and the apartment Carattinoit is in the homonymous street (carugio) at n 11, the westward part of Vernazza known by locals as "Lüvegu". Dominated by the ancient round watchtower, it faces both the sea and village.
The apartment Viscontitakes its name from the street where it is located, at n. 9, a few steps from the charming Piazza Marconi.
They are all in the historic center: in a couple of minutes you can reach both the famous Piazza Marconi overlooking the sea and the railway station. They enjoy privacy and silence as rare as precious. On the day you arrive we will meet you directly at the station or on the square to accompany you to your room and help with your luggage.
The most convenient way to reach Vernazza is definitely the train. The car, given the orography of the Ligurian territory in general and the Cinque Terre in particular, is not advised, as well as those who do not have the special pass reserved for residents must park in the paid areas on the hill, about 1 km from the town center.
In high season, the boats connecting the Cinque Terre to the Golfo dei Poeti and Tigullio can be a pleasant alternative to the more traditional means of transport.
Vernazza, like the other Cinque Terre, is located along the Genova - La Spezia - Pisa - Livorno - Roma railway line. To reach it you can arrive by Intercity trains to Levanto or La Spezia and then continue with the local trains, whose rides, except for the night hours, are very frequent, especially in the summer.
During the summer season, there is also a convenient shuttle service organized by Parco delle Cinque Terre which connects Sarzana to Levanto, stopping in all areas of the area. For more information: Trenitalia.
To reach Vernazza, you have to go along the scenic coastal road of the Cinque Terre, which connects Monterosso to Riomaggiore and runs for the most part at a height of about 400 meters above sea level. A difficult road, but it offers breathtaking views.
Warning: There are no petrol stations in the Cinque Terre area. The nearest distributors are in Levanto and La Spezia.
